Knowlehill goes back as a place-name to circa 1200 and is believed to be the site of a medieval mansion demolished in the eighteenth century. There remains a square court of brick outbuildings, elements of which may belong to the 16th century, with others dating to the 17th and 18th centuries. They are probably the servants quarters for a main building elsewhere. It has been suggested that the mansion stood to the north of the remaining buildings and, as there are no visible remains, it is probable that it was timber framed. (1) SMR21710, Knowle Hill Gardens, are closely associated with the house and outbuildings.
