The Villages Of The Cotswolds
Snowshill sits high on the Cotswold Edge above Broadway and the Vale of Evesham, but lies in a sheltered hollow.
Snowshill The village is attractive with most properties built of honey coloured Cotswold stone, quarried locally and
the manor house circa 15th-18th century stands prominent in the village. The manor was home to Charles Paget Wade and
contains a large collection of artifacts including toys, armour, bicycles and musical instruments
which were amassed by Charles Wade.
The gardens are also worth the visit. The property is owned by the National Trust.
The present church is rather plain and un-inspiring and was built in the mid 19th century having only
retained some of the interior of the previous building. Charles Wade is buried in the church grounds.
South of the village was a Bronze Age round barrow which yielded a substantial collection of weapons which are housed at the British Museum in London.
If you wish to visit the village, please park in the village carpark on the outskirts.
