Welcome to the first post from the Snowshill Manor conservation team. We are all very excited about our new blog and we hope that you will enjoy reading it as much as we will writing it.
Being part of this team means we are truly immersed into Mr Wade’s fanciful world of treasures and we would like to take this opportunity to share part of that world with you. Through this blog we will be providing an insight into the life of the staff and volunteers, not only exploring the daily routines but explaining what happens during the closed season and how we tackle the delicate balance of opening a historic house to the public and protecting the contents.
We will be opening the doors to our store rooms and sharing images of some of the 8,683 items we have in our stored collection. We will also be providing updates from our research team and focusing the spotlight on some of our favourite pieces.
We welcome your questions and comments and will do our best to answer them in a timely fashion.
Thank you for joining us.
The Manor Team
