Collecting Things

I recently visited the National Trust property called Snowshill Manor, in Gloucestershire – which was once the home of Charles Wade, who spent his entire life collecting… things.  There’s no order or structure or theme to the items that he collected, like a magpie he just gathered things that interested him (based on colour and construction quality).

The gallery below is a small example of the many hundreds of items you can find there.
