Heritage Trails in Knowle

We are deeply saddened by the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, after 70 years of dedicated service. Out of respect for the Royal family, we will be postponing our Heritage Trail Walks due to take place this weekend. In due course, we will share a new date with you.

Knowle visitors will be able to find out a little more about the history behind just some of the listed buildings in Knowle on Saturday 10th September 2022.

As part of Heritage Open Days, a number of local organisations have celebrated Knowle’s heritage over the years and this year, once again, there are a number of activities in the village.

Visit Knowle will be hosting guided heritage trail walks at 10.30, 12.30 and 2.30 on Saturday 10th September. These free guided walks will start outside the Guild House, but as places are limited, we recommend you book your place.

From 10am on Saturday 10th September, volunteers will also be on hand near the Guild House, where you can hang your memories of Knowle on our memory tree, or pick from 3 heritage trail guides produced in conjunction with Knowle Society.

Self guided trail walks include a stroll through the heart of the village and a one and a half mile route along historic routes out of the village and the Grand Union canal.

Heritage Events at Knowle Parish Church

A firm favourite for heritage open days are the church tower tours hosted by Knowle Parish Church. Details on how to book your tour will be released soon so follow them on Twitter or Facebook to find out more.

Dave Pinwell, Director of Visit Knowle said “There are 46 listed buildings in Knowle Ward, with a high concentration of them in the centre of Knowle. We really enjoy sharing our knowledge of local history with the local community. Come along and join us in the village for what we are sure will be a lovely afternoon”.
