Knowlton Parish Council was formed in November 1973 by combining the Parish Meetings of Wimborne St Giles, Woodlands, Chalbury and Horton and takes its name from the ancient settlement at Knowlton of which all that is left now is the ruined Saxon Church which is surrounded by prehistoric earthworks. The Parish consists mostly of farmland and woods with small settlements.
