Another World, Down the Cut
This small exhibition highlights that other world, just beyond the village, that is the short stretch of the Grand Union Canal which winds through Knowle: the boats which passed through; the families who made their living on the canal; and the effect on village life.
The personal memories of three generations of Knowle people, from the early 20th century to the Second World War recall a canal belonging to a long gone era; but, despite the ravages of time and man, it is still another world, set apart from the bustle and noise of the High Street.
