Seat Ugbrooke Park, Chudleigh, S Devon. An older house on the site, including a family chapel of around 1670, was almost entirely replaced by Robert Adam in the 1760s. This was not entirely due to changes in fashion, certainly not where the chapel was concerned. The penal laws forbade Catholics such as the CLIFFORDs to erect free-standing places of worship and the chapel had to be incorporated into the southwest wing of the main house. In the mid-1830s, following the Act of Catholic Emancipation of 1829, the 7th Baron was able to redress this furtive treatment of a major spatial feature, beautifying the apse with marble and installing an organ loft. Some features had been retained at the time of the mid-18th century transformation, the curving wings on the northwest side, for instance. But they only dated from c 1740. And then there were budgetary considerations. So Ugbrooke emerged from the Adam treatment as a toy fortification, crenellated, somewhat box-like as to shape, being of two storeys with eleven bays by ten, and enlivened by towers at each corner. A curious feature, which has come in for some criticism, are the rounded tubular mouldings to the windows in composition stone, and a larger version surrounding the main entrance, all added in the 1850s. In the mid-1870s the appearance of the battlements was rendered a bit more formidable by enlargement. But the arts of peace were by no means neglected the conservatory dates from 1863.
