Local Knowledge -  Knutsford was recorded in William the Conqueror’s ‘Doomsday Book’ of 1066 as ‘Cunetesford’ (‘Canute’s Ford’) derived from the place where Danish King Canute ‘forded’ the River Lily in 1016. Later variations of the town’s name are Knotesforde (1281), Knodesford (1354), and Knyzteford (1398).

The town was granted its first charter in 1292 and the town’s central position resulted in it being known as the ‘Capital of Cheshire’.

Knutsford is a pretty, interesting Market town, with original cobbled streets and has Georgian buildings and houses, typified in Elizabeth Gaskell’s famous story of ‘Cranford’, which was set in 19th century Knutsford. Elizabeth Gaskell, 1810 – 65, the novelist and biographer, spent most of her life in the town and the house where she grew up stands in what is now Gaskell Avenue.

The main town centre streets, Princess Street (also known locally as Top Street and where Rohan is situated) and King Street lower down, and also known as Bottom Street, form the ‘hub’ of the town. At one end of the narrow King Street is an entrance to Tatton Park.

Tatton Park is one of the North West’s most popular heritage attractions. Over 750,000 visits are made each year to the 1,000 acres of deer park, Mansion, Gardens, Old Hall, rare breeds Farm and events. Most popular events include the annual RHS Tatton Show, Antique fares and music concerts.
