Snowshill Manor 1
Snowshill Manor was the home of Charles Paget Wade, architect and eccentric. He amassed a vast collection of craft objects which are housed in the Manor. He lived in an outbuilding round the corner from where this snap was taken. I'm not saying it is a big collection, but I wouldn't want to dust them. The garden was also designed by him and is another example of the Arts and Crafts movement. He left the house to the National Trust in 1951 and ironically died on a visit in 1956. Snowshill is in the village of Broadway in Worcestershire which is the ultimate chocolate box cotswold village...too much so for my taste. Close by is the wonderfully named Fish Hill!
