Who was Charles Wade? 

Snowshill Manor as we know it was created from 1919 by the architect, artist and collector Charles Paget Wade (1883–1956).

" Great has been the delight of forming the collection at Snowshill Manor. To how many interesting, strange, out of the way places has it led."
- Charles Wade
