Snowshill Manor, Gloucestershire


National Trust, Wessex Region

1994-Present

Snowshill Manor is owned by the National Trust and is an important historic building incorporating traditional Cotswold Stone structures from the 16th to the 19th Centuries. It was greatly improved by the involvement of Charles Paget Wade who purchased the building in 1919. Wade an extremely talented Architect and an avid collector of craftsmanship made alterations to the Manor and adjacent buildings with the principal aim of housing his extensive and varied collections.

The practice has been involved with the Manor for several years and has undertaken a detailed condition report and projects which include re-roofing of the Manor and repairs to timber-framed and stone structures within the garden set out to designs by Bailie-Scott.

The latest phase of work has involved the complete re-servicing of the property to improve and provide control of the environmental conditions within the Manor for the benefit of the extensive collections. The work has also involved the installation of electric heating and complete rewiring as well as other minor alteration works to provide fire check walls.

The project involved careful logistics to remove the 200,000 items in the collection and protection of the fabric of the building.
