KNOWLE LOCAL HISTORY SOCIETY
The Society has long experience of conducting parties round Knowle, both for local residents and for other organisations. With many members who are life-long village residents we have a large number of knowledgeable guides.
Time constraints normally mean that tours are restricted to the central part of the village. The oldest and most interesting parts are The Square and Kenilworth Road. Knowle's early 15th century church and Guild House and the Red Lion Inn can be found in The Square, whilst there are many attractive timber-framed cottages in Kenilworth Road. High Street still has some interesting buildings, including Knowle's showpiece timber-framed public library. There are more interesting features at the Solihull end of the village.
A tour taking in The Square, Kenilworth Road and the church takes about an hour. A mini,um of an hour and a half is needed to include High Street and the Solihull end of the village. It should be noted that access to the interior of the church and the Guild House is dependent on whether or not they are in use. There is a service each Wednesday morning at 10 a. m., which ends about 10.45 and is followed by coffee in the Guild House. The library is also closed on Wednesdays.
