Posted on March 13, 2020 by Forde George

Forde George have been involved at Ugbrooke House for a number of years, undertaking numerous fascinating works. The latest proving to be the most revealing. Under the scrutiny of Historic England, the largely C19 internal finishes are being removed to reveal the C18 structures designed by Robert Adam, but also in the process exposing what is believed to be much of the earlier building, about which very little is known. the scars of later strcutures abutting original can be seen.
