Publications and Products


From time to time the Society publishes material featuring Knowle; over the years this material has included guides, walks leaflets, videos/DVDs and calendars. It has also collaborated in the publication of some privately published books which have become valuable reference sources and are now mostly out of print.

Current publications and products are:

  • A Short Guide to Central Knowle (booklet)
  • Celebrations in Knowle from the 1930s to the 1960s (DVD)
  • Long-handled cotton shopper (bag)

A Short Guide to Central Knowle – price £2, was £3.
Thoroughly revised. Describes all buildings of interest in Central Knowle, illustrated with many new photographs.

Celebrations in Knowle from the 1930s to the 1960s – DVD price £8
This new DVD (the Society’s first) comprises unique black and white and early colour film of carnivals and national celebrations in Knowle taken over four decades by Mr F G Ratcliff.

This is a newly revised version of the VHS video last available in 1993. It provides a fascinating and amusing insight into life in the growing village of Knowle. This DVD makes a delightful gift and will appeal to anyone with a love of Knowle and particularly to anyone with roots in the village.
