In the attics of the manor house is a set of models of farm carts. The owner of the manor, Charles Paget Wade, had observed that different counties have different styles of cart, and he had a set of models made.
Snowshill Manor
Snowshill Manor is a National Trust property located in the village of Snowshill. The manor house is a typical Cotswold house, made from local stone; the main part of the house dates from the 16th century.

Between 1539 and 1919 it had a number of tenants and owners until it was purchased by Charles Paget Wade, an architect, artist-craftsman, collector, poet and heir to the family fortune. He restored the property, living in the small cottage in the garden and using the manor house as a home for his collection of objects.

Today, the main attraction of the house is perhaps the display of Wade's collection. During the first half of the twentieth century, Wade amassed an enormous and eclectic collection of objects reflecting his interest in craftsmanship until, in 1951, he gave the Manor together the contents of his collection to the National Trust. The objects in the collection include 26 suits of Japanese samurai armour dating from the 17th and 19th centuries; bicycles; toys; musical instruments and more.

National Trust
A National Trust is an organization dedicated to preserving the cultural or environmental treasures of a particular geographic region. They generally operate as private non-profit organizations, although some receive considerable support from their national government. The first such organization was the National Trust for Places of Historic Interest or Natural Beauty, which is the National Trust of England, Wales and Northern Ireland, formed in 1895 and operating as a charitable organisation.
