Snowshill Manor, in the Cotswolds

Snowshill Manor in the Cotswolds was the home of a rather eccentric collector by the name of Charles Paget Wade. Walking through his house full of collections it is plain to see that he never quite grew up in some ways, though I certainly wouldn't say that this is a bad thing: his horde of acquisitions is simply fascinating to browse through: from Samurai armour, siege crossbows and claymores, to keys, spinning wheels, insects and model wagons.

Something for everyone, and certainly worth a visit.

Like his collection, I have purposefully left no particular order to these photographs, or labelled any of them.
