Knowle is a large village that sits on the very edge of the West Midlands conurbation and affords residents with excellent transport links and a wealth of restaurants and shops on the High Street. Knowle is part of the Metropolitan Borough of Solihull – to the south-east it merges with the areas of Dorridge and Bentley Heath whilst to the south and west is open countryside before the villages of Balsall Common, Lapworth, and Rowington. The Warwick Road runs straight through the village and takes motorists through the Warwickshire countryside directly to Warwick and Leamington Spa, or in the opposite direction as the A41 runs through the south-eastern suburbs of Birmingham all the way to the city centre. Knowle is a few moments’ drive from Solihull – the village is separated from the town by Junction 5 of the M42 that connects with the M40 to the south for those heading to London, and runs along the eastern side of Birmingham to connect with the M6 to the north. Although there is no railway station in Knowle itself there are stations within five minutes’ drive at Solihull, Dorridge, and Widney Manor from which connections can be taken to the commercial and business hub of Birmingham city centre – from these stations trains reach Birmingham Snow Hill within half an hour. London Marylebone is a journey of around an hour and forty minutes from these stations, though a fast train from Birmingham International station close to the airport in Solihull reaches Euston in an hour and a quarter. Within Knowle there is a wide mixture of property types. In the rural area surrounding the village there are larger period properties such as those on Bakers Lane and Norton Green Lane; in the village itself are typical 20th century suburban houses and modern developments; and along the Warwick Road towards Solihull in the Copt Heath area are flats. Along the High Street are many independent shops and restaurants – curry houses, pubs, and specialist seafood restaurants. There is also a shopping precinct with a branch of Tesco and a post office. The village has long been wealthy, as evidenced by the large 15th century Perpendicular Gothic church on the High Street. Arden School, which sits on Station Road in the village, is a highly-regarded state school and there are also several primary schools in Knowle, Dorridge and Bentley Heath. On Hampton Road are a football club and Knowle Village Cricket Club, whilst the Old Silhillians club on the Warwick Road is a combined hockey, rugby, and squash club.
