Plague & pestilence ravaged Britain throughout the Middle Ages & Knowlton’s terminal decline might be ultimately attributed to this, even though the once thriving village survived these epidemics, it may not, in the longer term, have recovered sufficiently from the effects of depopulation to make it through into the modern period.


Who’ll work the fields
Now the rye it is standing?

Who’ll mill the grain
Now the stone is not grinding?

Who’ll tend the farm
While there’s no-one for hiring?

Who’ll read the psalm
While the bell it is tolling?

Who’ll take the rent
Now the reeve he is absent?

What’s to collect
Now the dwellings are vacant?

Down falls the wheel
Where the river is flowing

Wind tolls the bell
And the pages are blowing
