“The present exhibition in the Local History Centre “The Bower Family & Knowle Lodge” has only three more weeks left to run.
This exhibition features the history of the local Bower family, of the move to Birmingham from Newent in the mid 1700s by one member of the family, Edward, and the eventual move to Knowle in 1860 by one of Edwards grandsons, also Edward, and their lives thereafter. We finish the exhibition with a brief synopsis of our late Dr Bower’s life and his devotion and contribution to the village and people of Knowle.
There are lots of lovely old and newer photographs to look at beginning in the early 1800s and we hope you’ll try to come along and see the exhibition before it finishes at the end of June. If you do make it, we would be very pleased if you could sign our visitor’s book which is usually on the table or on one of the cabinets.”
