Notes to Editor

First mentioned in the Domesday Book in 1086, tradition links the town’s name with that of King Canute who is reputed to have forded the River lily here – hence the name Cunetesford and more recently Knutsford.  Based in a 17th century timber-framed building, the Knutsford Heritage Centre has a small museum hosting a number of talks, exhibitions and displays throughout the year.  ‘Cranford’ and ‘People and Places’ walking tours are also available, alongside a delightful garden and shop.  www.knutsfordheritage.co.uk This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
