Knotting Index of Pages

The following pages are designed to give a brief history of some aspects of the community. They are certainly not intended to be exhaustive and more work could be done, for example, on the interesting buildings with reference to census returns, electoral registers and name searches for owners and/or occupiers amongst our other archives, or on churches with reference to the parish records. We hope that reading these pages will encourage you to do more research of your own. If you find additional information on any of the pages below or, indeed, information on aspects of the community not covered here, we would love to hear from you and could publish your research here, giving credit, of course, where it is due!
