Knowle Guild House

Knowle Guild House

The Guild House is a part of the adjacent Parish Church in the heart of the old village. It accommodates the Parish Office and is also a meeting space.

The Guild House was originally constructed in 1412, built for the Guild of St Anne, a religious charity of the time. This Guild was dissolved at the time of the Reformation and ownership passed on.

The death of the then owner, a Mr Jackson, in 1912 saw the Guild House pass, at his bequest, into the ownership of the Church.

The Guild House can be seen to the right of our picture, with its timbered gable and high chimney. The timbered building to the left of it is St Anne's Cottage, a separate building, but also bequeathed by Mr Jackson to the Church on his passing.
