Archive Guidelines


This is a searchable database of items held in the local history centre based at Knowle Library. To contact the Society about any item, please contact our local history chairperson(s) Peter and Betty Ewin at or our history archivist Ann Bower at

Searching the Database

To search across all fields (the whole Archive) enter text in the Search: box.

Entries in the Title: field begin with the Archive catalogue number e.g. 1/1/1, then the date of the item (if known) in brackets e.g. [2021] and finally the Title of the item.

Entries in each field in this online catalogue of the Archive are limited to 251 characters, so some information, usually in the Details: field may be truncated.

If you wish to follow up any item of interest please contact the Local History team.
