KNOWLE LOCAL HISTORY SOCIETY
Although the original village was in Kenilworth Road there are signs which suggest that there may have been a cluster of buildings at the north end of the village. Knowle Lodge, which stood on the corner of High Street and Lodge Road, where the surgery is today, dated from about 1400. The upper part of Artillery Cottages on the Warwick Road dates from about 1600, whilst the timbered cottage below the British Legion is said to be on even earlier foundations.
Hampton Road (formerly Hampton Lane and originally Malthouse Lane) leads to the hamlet
of Eastcote, crossing the ford on the way to Hampton-
At the crossroads at Eastcote a right turn leads to Barston; to the left lies Ravenshaw; Hampton is straight ahead. In old documents Eastcote is spelt Escote, as it is still sometimes pronounced.
