HOUSE OF COMMONS SET
The set is described as being a one-to-one scale replica of the House of Commons.
When fully erected, the set is approx 5,000 sq ft but it can be housed within a 2,500 sq ft warehouse when disassembled.
It was used by Meryl Streep in the 2011 blockbuster, The Iron Lady.
It was originally built for 1986 series First Among Equals at Granada in Manchester And regularly appeared in shows such as The New Statesman between 1987 and 1992.
Paul Abbott, a former Granada scriptwriter, bought the set to save it from destruction and stored it in an Oxfordshire barn after it ceased being used for State of Play.
In its eBay advert Wimbledon Studios adds that with clever dressing the set can be made to look like the House of Lords, by replacing green benches with red ones.
Meryl Streep used the set in 2011 to film parts of the international blockbuster The Iron Lady.
The prison set has welcomed Hollywood stars Anthony Hopkins, Jude Law and Rachel Weiz who filmed scenes there for 2011 film 360.
Dizzee Rascal, Rita Ora and Ed Sheeran have also spent time filming music videos on set.
The 1,000ft courtroom was frequently used in the long running iconic cop drama The Bill and more recently TV comedy shows This is Jinsy and Dead Boss.
Piers Read, managing director at the studios, said: ‘Selling the sets cements our new future as an exclusive hub for creativity in South West London.
‘High demand and upcoming productions require more floor space currently being taken up storing the House of Commons, Courtroom and Prison sets.
‘While it will be sad to see such iconic creations go, our clients need the extra space to deliver their productions on time, so we need to make changes to accommodate their needs.’
