KINGSTEIGNTON
SX 87 NE
4/104 Clapperland Lodge

II

Lodge to Ugbrooke Park (q.v.). Probably mid/late C19 although Rowan suggests that
the design may be by Capability Brown (d. 1783) or by William Spring, clerk of the
works for the rebuilding of the house at Ugbrooke, or Joseph Rowe, the architect of
the stables (last known work to date 1813). Local limestone rubble with grey
limestone quoins and dressings, the dressings painted black; thatched roof, hipped at
ends of main range, rear left wing tiled (replacing thatch); rear lateral stack to
main range.
L plan, the main range single depth, 2 rooms wide with a central entrance lobby with
stairs to the rear of the lobby. Rear left kitchen wing at right angles to the main
range with a tiled roof; lean-to at rear of kitchen; later conservatory in angle
between main range and rear wing. A rustic cottage design similar in some of its
details to Ashwell Lodge (q.v.).
2 storeys. Symmetrical 2 window front with regular fenestration, the eaves thatch
eyebrowed over 2 first floor 2-light casements with diamond leaded panes and cranked
arches ; central C20 timber porch, 3 plank and stud front door with strip hinges.
The 2 ground floor windows have cranked arches with keystones and C20 iron casements.
On the right return there is a single-storey bow window with a thatched porch on
rustic posts around it, the porch presumably re-sited.
Interior not inspected.
The park at Ugbrooke Park was landscaped by Capability Brown and is remarkable for
the absence of sophisticated architectural temples, grottos or seats. The simplicity
of the Ashwell and Clapperland Lodges is an important aspect of the character of
Ugbrooke Park and the setting of the seat of the the Cliffords.
A photograph of the lodge reproduced in Country Life shows the rear left wing
thatched with a thatched porch in the centre and a rustic lattice porch to the
present front door.
