Knowle Heritage Walks have been launched by Knowle Society and Visit Knowle to provide walking routes that cover many of Knowle’s heritage buildings, many of them nationally listed, and landmarks and provide snapshots of their history.
There are now two walks with a third being planned. The two available now are:
Walk One – Knowle High Street (available as a pdf or as webpages)
A three quarter mile stroll through the heart of the village.
Walk Two – Cottages and Locks (available as a pdf or as webpages)
A one and a half mile route along historic routes out of the village and the Grand Union canal
IN LIGHT OF THE CORONAVIRUS PROBLEM, ALL WALKS ARE CANCELLED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
This will be as local a walk as it can be! Starting from the car park at Knowle Park (off Longdon Rd) we will explore the byways (and a few highways) in and around Knowle. Although most of the walk will be on paved paths, there will be some on muddy paths, so please be prepared. The distance will be 4 miles but there will be options to cut it short if you need to, or if the weather is too horrendous!
Come along and find out how you can get about the village without using the car.
On behalf of the Society, I wish you and your families a Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year.
BOXING DAY WALK
The traditional walk on Boxing Day morning will take place again this year on Dec 26th! It starts at 11am from the Guild House and will call in at Hall Farm Court on the Kenilworth Road for Mulled Wine and mince pies (with alternatives for those who wish).
Everyone is very welcome, so bring your families and friends. It’s a good way of walking off some of the excesses of Christmas Day and getting some fresh air.
Don’t forget the walk on Sunday 13 Oct. It starts from the Temple Balsall Car Park on Fen End Rd at 2pm. It’ll be 3 – 4 miles with Tea & Cakes in the medieval Old Hall at the end. Come along and bring a friend.
Actually a little late, but it’s still near enough.
This is a real stroll for a warm(ish) evening, just 2 miles with a pub before and after!!
Meet at the Wharf, Hockley Heath for a 7:00pm start, so you’ll have time for a meal there first if you want to. There’ll certainly be time for refreshments afterwards. Led by Dave Pinwell.
