After much too long a break, the Society’s walks programme  will begin again on:-
Sunday 31 October – Countryside and canal Meet at 2pm outside the Guild House for a walk south of Knowle, returning via the Grand Union canal. Distance 4 miles.

The Boxing Day walk will also take place this year on Sunday 26th December(!).
Meet at 11am in the car park at the rear of Knowle Church for a bracing 3 mile walk in the countryside.  Depending on the situation, refreshments might not be available this year, let’s hope we can gather at the end to have a winter warmer.


The Society is very pleased to record that the project has been completed and is in full use. We are grateful to those who drove it forward and to those who supported it through donations.  The children (of all ages) are making good use of it.

Keep your eyes open for a possible second phase to improve the exercise equipment.


After much too long a break, we are pleased to announce that we are planning a programme of meetings for the coming year.  The plans are not yet confirmed, and will have to be flexible while things are still difficult, but we will do what we can to get back to (nearly) normal.

To start with:-

Bookings for the Quiz Night on October 18 are opening today please gather your teams promptly to ensure your spaces.  Online bookings can be made here.

As usual it will be a 7.30pm start, with fish’n’chip supper and run under the gaze of our regular Quiz Master, Peter Ewin.

Knowle Time Machine Heritage Festival

Knowle Society is one of several local organisations joining forces to celebrate our historic village in the Knowle Time Machine Heritage Festival with a massive programme of events, primarily on Saturdays 11th and 18th September.
As well as our own exhibition in the Library and Guided Heritage Walks, there will be workshops in ancient skills and family history, outdoor theatre, song and dance, church tower visits, a pig roast and more. The full programme can be found at (some events need to be pre-booked). Why not take a look and put in your diary now.
Some volunteers are needed to help on the day with setting up venues and co-ordinating activities etc. If you can spare a couple of hours on one of the days to help make the Festival a success, please email Dave Pinwell (
