About Knowle Hill

Knowle Hill event

We have a vision for Knowle Hill to become a farmstead community of six sustainable homes.

For 12 years, the site at Knowle Hill has been redundant. Originally developed as a water filtration works during World War Two to service the Royal Ordnance Factory (ROF), the works were finally closed in 2008. ROF Bridgwater, or ROF37, needed millions of gallons of clean water per day!

With the ROF now closed and in remediation, we are now working up plans to reimagine Knowle Hill as a small, low carbon community which makes the most of its unique and green surroundings to improve the appearance of the site and make a positive contribution to the locality.

This flythrough provides a visual sense of what the homes would look like, if plans are approved.

Next steps

We are progressing these plans along with our Knowle Hill design partner Origin3 and planning consultant Stantec. These plans for Knowle Hill in Bawdrip parish are a small part of our overall ambition to regenerate ROF37 as a smart campus for sustainable businesses, creating new employment opportunities into the future.

After refining our plans, we will submit a planning application to Sedgemoor District Council this autumn.

If our plans are approved, work to prepare the Knowle Hill site could begin from mid-2021.

2019 collection

Let’s face it, no look is really complete without the right finishes. Not to the best of standards, anyway (just tellin’ it like it is, babe). Upgrading your shoe game. Platforms, stilettos, wedges, mules, boots—stretch those legs next time you head out, then rock sliders, sneakers, and flats when it’s time to chill.
