Samantha McGregor posted a picture of the cranes and asked: "Where is James?"

Jonny Dyer tweeted: "Lots of very expensive cars and film unit gear at Blenheim Palace today. Staff cagey but seems to be new #bond #007."

Matt Lawley added a photo of a "007 crew minibus" sign, while Finnish 007 location bloggers Pirita and Mika also claimed the site had been used for filming.

The palace has previously featured in several films, including Gulliver's Travels and Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.
