Kneeton - an Introduction

Location of Kneeton

Some descriptions of the village from early guide books and county histories

The village of Kneeton, Says Guilford (p.106)*, originally spelt its name Kneveton, but it was pronounced as it is now spelt.  This dropping of the Medieval 'v's' in pronounciation is the rule in Nottinghamshire.

* GUILFORD, Everard L 'Nottinghamshire' (London: Methuen 1910).
