Discover the Potential Development Sites

Interested in finding out exactly where the over a thousand new houses that have been proposed for development in Knowle in the Draft Local Plan will be sited? Join The Knowle Society for an evening tour of the sites, approximately a three mile walk, on Wednesday 24th May. This stroll will commence at 7pm from the Car Park of Knowle (Jobs Close) Park. All are welcome. As this will involve exploring some potentially muddy fields, suitable footwear is recommended.

Boxing Day Walk

Boxing Day Walk


Monday, 26 December 2016 – 11:00am

Led by Leighton Jones 077111 512181.
The traditional post-Christmas walk takes place again this year, so why not stretch your legs on a gentle 3 mile walk with mulled wine and mince pies at the end – as if you needed more to eat!

Starts from the Guild House prompt at 11am – ALL welcome, so bring the family & guests. No dogs please, they struggle with the stiles and fall in the canal. Weather guaranteed; I don’t know what it’ll be, but there will be weather! The walk takes place anyway.


What a day for a walk in the country. Sunshine, good company and mulled wine and mince pies at the end, what more could we have asked? A good crowd of about 80 met to enjoy some (very) fresh air and walk off a little of the Christmas excess in the traditional Boxing Day walk.

Lost walkers!

Because of the late change in meeting venue for last Sunday’s walk, half the walkers didn’t get to join the official walk and did their own instead. We apologise for the mix-up and have taken steps to reduce this risk in future. See full apology.

First walk of 2014 – on Turnover Bridge


After the downpours of the morning, fifteen hardy souls were surprised by a sunny and warm afternoon as they enjoyed a two hour stroll from the fringes of Knowle to outskirts of Lapworth across the fields and over the stiles before returning along the Grand Union Canal this afternoon, in the first outing of the Knowle Society’s 2014 Walks Programme.

Picture – Time to take a whiff at Turnover Bridge, off Chapel Lane, Chessetts Wood.

Neighbourhood Day Walk – report

One of the finest March days drew an 18 strong group of members to join the ‘Neighbourhood Day’ walk on 25th March. Leaving from the Guild House the route took in Kenilworth Road and Kixley Lane before heading north on the canal to Grove Farm. We then worked our way back towards Knowle through the lanes and housing estates to the east of the Warwick Road. In the process most people learned more about their neighbourhood and chatted to other Society members and therefore their neighbours.
