Welcome to Knutsford

Our historic and picturesque town lies just 15 miles southwest of Manchester on the doorstep of one of the UK’s most complete historic estates, Tatton Park. Steeped in heritage and with a thriving independent Town Centre, Knutsford offers visitors a refreshing break in charming Cheshire countryside. Knutsford traces its history back to King Canute who reputedly forded the river Lily here, and for hundreds of years was one of the most important Cheshire towns. The Victorian novelist Elizabeth Gaskell based her fictional town of Cranford on Knutsford, and during World War II Knutsford was home to General Patton. Knutsford is also home to the most famous of all May Day events still celebrated in the UK with the 150th Knutsford Royal May Day taking place in May 2014. Knutsford Town Centre, bucking the national trend, is filled with independent shops and little boutiques. It is the perfect place to spend an afternoon shopping and is buzzing with activity on the first Sunday of each month with the hugely popular Makers’ Market. I hope you enjoy visiting Knutsford; seeing what it has to offer and exploring our fantastic Cheshire surroundings. Please visit us again. Cllr Neil Forbes Knutsford Town Mayor

Town Council and Armorial Bearings

Knutsford Town Council was formed in 1974 following the dissolution of the Knutsford Urban District Council. It is the most local tier of Government, with Cheshire East Council as the primary authority. The Town Council is working with Cheshire East to facilitate the transfer of key facilities such as the town market, allotments and public toilets to the Town Council. One of the key aims of the Town Council is to promote Knutsford as an enjoyable place to live, work and visit and this is echoed throughout their recently adopted 2020 Vision. The Town Council consists of 15 elected members representing the four wards of Knutsford. A Mayor is elected annually and he/she represents the Town at a number of civic events throughout their year in office. The Council also employs three members of staff – a Town Clerk, Deputy Clerk and Mayor’s PA. The Armorial Bearings of the Town Council were presented to the Urban District in 1955 by the Nether Knutsford Freeholders. The shield is blue and gold, the liveries of the Earldom and County of Chester. The cross represents the ancient Cross Town, which is now part of Knutsford. The two Cheshire sheaves represent Over Knutsford and Nether Knutsford, once separate townships which were joined together to form Knutsford in 1895 with the creation of the Urban District Council.

The fleur-de-lys are from the arms of the two Leycester families who were the lords of Tabley and Toft. The blue and white waves with ancient crown represent the traditional story of King Canute fording the river Lily. The red walled crown represents Halton Castle and the gold lozenges William Fitznigel, Baron of Halton under the Norman Earl of Chester who first held the Manor of Knutsford. The red lion represents the arms of Egerton and Legh families, and around its neck is a garland of May for the famous Royal May Day celebrations. The lion holds a book in reference to Mrs Gaskell and the ancient Grammar School.

History

Tradition links Knutsford with King Canute who, legend has it, forded the river Lily in 1016 giving Knutsford its name. Knutsford is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1085 as Cunetesford and the Town’s first charter was granted to William de Tabley by Edward I in 1292 followed by the establishment of a court, fair and market in 1294. Knutsford was historically one of the most important towns in Cheshire and from 1729-1873 County families would drive to Knutsford in their coaches for the famous racecourse.

12

Quarter Sessions had been held in Knutsford since 1575; originally in the Market Place and afterwards in a new building where now stands the RBS bank in Canute Place. In 1819 the Sessions House was built and while no longer in use still stands as a grand landmark in the town centre. Behind the Courthouse was Knutsford Gaol. Work began on the new prison due to overcrowding at Chester and it was enlarged in 1853. By 1914 it was no longer taking prisoners and the building was demolished in 1934; the site is now occupied by Booths supermarket.

Chester on the train. In 1864 the first official May Day was held, and in 1887 Prince Edward (later King Edward VII) bestowed the prefix ‘Royal’ to the event.

Knutsford was a popular coaching stop, which brought many distinguished visitors to the Town. The most popular coaching inn was on King Street and originally known as The George and Dragon, but later the George Hotel. In 1832 it became the Royal George Hotel following Princess Victoria’s stay just five years before she became Queen. The George’s heyday was the coaching era when it was patronised by the gentry who built the Assembly Rooms by raising subscriptions.

The early twentieth century saw Richard Harding Watt leave his mark on the town’s landscape as he created a series of Italianate buildings; further information on Watt’s buildings can be found on page 38. The first free public library opened in 1904 having been built by the Urban District Council with a grant from Andrew Carnegie.

Victorian Knutsford, with its cobbled streets, was the inspiration for Elizabeth Gaskell’s Cranford. In 1845 the Knutsford Freeholders paid for five gas pillar lamps to be installed in the town and one still remains near the Knutsford entrance to Tatton Park.

During the Second World War, Knutsford was home to General Patton and troops from the American army. Following the war overspill housing estates were built by the Manchester Corporation to accommodate families from Manchester.

In May 1862 Knutsford railway station was opened and trains ran to Altrincham and Manchester. In 1863 the line was extended to Northwich and by 1874 Knutsfordians could also travel to

In 1974, with the formation of Knutsford Town Council, the office of Mayor of Knutsford was reintroduced.

Mrs Gaskell and Knutsford

Few writers are as closely linked with a particular town as Mrs Gaskell is with Knutsford. Elizabeth Gaskell is Cheshire’s pre-eminent novelist, one of the most important women writers of the nineteenth century. Knutsford is of course Cranford in the novel of the same name and it appears under the name of Hollingford in her last book Wives and Daughters. In both books she gives a picture of life in the town which is vivid, amusing and profound and her characters are as real today as they were over a hundred and fifty years ago. Recent television productions of both books have increased their popularity.

Elizabeth was brought up in Knutsford from 1811 by her Aunt Lumb, who lived at Heathwaite House, on Gaskell Avenue. She worshipped at Brook Street Unitarian Chapel on Adams Hill and married William Gaskell at the Parish Church in 1832. Many other streets and buildings are associated with her life and her stories. These include the Royal George, then a coaching inn with a ballroom attached, and the Angel Hotel both on King Street. The Old Vicarage on the corner of Drury Lane and King Street and Hollingford House on Toft Road are also referred to. Tatton Park features several times in Wives and Daughters as Cumnor Towers. There is a Gaskell collection at Knutsford Library and an exhibition on Elizabeth Gaskell’s Cheshire at Brook Street Chapel Hall. The Knutsford Heritage Centre sells a selection of Gaskell material, including booklets on walks around Knutsford, and runs conducted tours of the town. The Gaskell Society was born in Knutsford and holds regular meetings, events and trips both in the town and in other parts of the UK. It has a world-wide membership of 500.

He became steward of the Tatton Club, a gentlemen’s club located in Tatton Street which began life as a Baptist Chapel and he was in great demand to recite his own poem about the “charge” at local concerts. Whilst he has a gravestone in St John’s Churchyard it is not known where he is buried; possibly because he committed suicide.

Trumpet Major Smith

Sir Henry Royce Henry Royce moved to Knutsford in a newly built home on Legh Road in 1898 and it was whilst living in Knutsford that he met Charles Stewart Rolls beginning the famous Rolls-Royce partnership.

General George Patton General Patton and personnel of the American Third Army were based in and around Knutsford between January and June 1944. His Headquarters was at Peover Hall. It was outside the Old Town Hall that General Patton, invited to open a Donut Dugout, made his famous speech on 25 April 1944. Some of Patton’s Troops were camped on the Heath and in the grounds of Toft Hall, which later became a prisoner of war camp.

Edward Higgins A gentleman by day but notorious highwayman by night, Edward “Highwayman” Higgins lived at Heath House on Gaskell Avenue. Highwayman Higgins was known to have stolen from a number of the local gentry and was finally caught in Carmarthen where in 1767 he was hanged.

Knutsford Heritage Centre

Knutsford Heritage Centre was established in 1988 through the Groundwork Trust who took on the enormous task of reconstructing the main building into its original 17th century timber framed building. The building was once a smithy, ironmongers and tinsmith. It is now a thriving and popular visitor centre. Thanks to an army of dedicated and knowledgeable volunteers, the Centre is open all year round and offers a variety of exhibitions and events. The stunning Millennium Tapestry is on permanent display in a separate building which can be accessed through the charming and calming courtyard garden. Sit awhile and enjoy the peace. Knutsford has a rich and varied history and you might like to take a guided walk around the town which will reveal many interesting tales and characters such as Elizabeth Gaskell, Richard Harding Watt, Sir Henry Royce, General George Patton and many more.

Brook Street Heritage Site

The Brook Street Heritage site includes the beautiful Grade I Listed Chapel, graveyard, gardens, chapel hall and exhibition rooms. The Chapel is the oldest place of worship in Knutsford having been built in 1689 after the Act of Toleration was passed which allowed non-conformists to build their own places of worship. Because dissenters had been persecuted for so long it was built looking like a farm building with simple diamond shaped glass windows that would not attract too much attention. It had exterior staircases with places for “lookouts” to stand to warn worshippers of any trouble. The building has changed very little since it was first built and its beauty is in its simplicity. Nestled behind the Chapel are tranquil gardens surrounded by trees. In the centre of the lawn behind the graves sits a Mulberry Tree sapling from Shakespeare’s garden to commemorate the two years Elizabeth Gaskell spent at boarding school in Stratford-upon-Avon. The Chapel Hall was built in 1885 for the purpose of educating the “common man” as there was no state education. Unitarians felt education was extremely important for everyone. The school hall is now used for social activities, concerts and also hosts the Photographic Society and Actor Tribe drama school.

24

The first of the two exhibition rooms, ‘the large room’ is dedicated to the eminent authoress Elizabeth Gaskell who worshipped at the Chapel and was also a Sunday school teacher. The exhibition concentrates on her early life in Knutsford and her association with other Cheshire homes and families at such places as Styal Mill, Tatton Park and Tabley House. As well as attractive and easy to read information boards, there is a large doll’s house representing her home in Gaskell Avenue and life size models and dolls wearing clothes from the era. The room depicts a Victorian sitting room with many artefacts on display.

Penny Farthing Museum

In 1978 Glynn Stockdale owned an antique furniture shop on King Street. One day a customer asked if he would like to buy a ‘Penny Farthing’; it re-awakened in Glynn a childhood fascination with the big wheeled machines and from that point on the Glynn Stockdale collection began, and the rest, as they say, is history. He has gone on to collect hundreds of early bicycles and with other likeminded enthusiasts, founded the 10-yearly Knutsford Great Race for vintage bike enthusiasts (the next is scheduled for 2020). In 1989 he opened the Penny Farthing Museum, housed in The Courtyard Coffee Shop and Restaurant, set in his old furniture workshop situated in a cobbled courtyard at the rear of 92 King Street. Penny farthings were only made for 20 years, from 1871 to 1891, but young Victorians developed a cult following for them and even when they realised the chain-driven bikes were faster, they continued to ride their penny farthings well past their sell-by-date. The museum is home to up to 40 examples of this unique Victorian mode of transport, including earlier velocipedes and memorabilia. There are examples of early wooden ‘Hobby Horses’, ‘Boneshaker’ and the famous ‘Starley

26

Giant’ – the largest Penny Farthing ever made. The fascinating collection of ‘Ordinaries’ (as Penny Farthings were originally known) contains some of the most collectable and valuable machines still in existence including some of the rarest early wooden machines and children’s models. The collection continues to grow and recent additions include a wooden machine rescued from a barn in France and lovingly restored to go on display at the museum. The premises are open 7 days a week 10 – 4, from April to November (closed Sundays November – March).

Knutsford Royal May Day

Knutsford Royal May Day is the highlight of the Town’s calendar and takes place every year on the first Saturday of May. The annual event dates back to 1864 when it was started by Rev Robert Clowes. In 1887 the Prince and Princess of Wales (later King Edward VII) bestowed the prefix “Royal” upon the event.

A popular tradition accompanying the Royal May Day festivities and believed to be unique to Knutsford is the custom of sanding the streets. The origins date back to King Canute who after fording the river sat down to shake sand from his boots. It became the tradition to sand the homes of the bridal couple and this tradition has continued into the May Day festivities. In 2014 the annual event celebrated its 150th anniversary. A mammoth funfair also visits the Town during May Day providing yet more entertainment. You can find more information on the event online at www.knutsford-royal-mayday.co.uk.

Each year the large procession promenades through Knutsford Town Centre featuring the Town Crier and hundreds of children dressed as a variety of characters including Mrs Gaskell, Royal Jesters, characters from popular nursery rhymes and many more. The Royal May Queen is escorted through the town with her Ladies-inWaiting to the Heath for the crowning ceremony where she is crowned by the Crown Bearer.

War Memorials

Like many towns and villages across the country, Knutsford honours the fallen of the two world wars on a number of war memorials. The main memorial, built following the First World War, is the Red Cross Cottage Hospital on Northwich Road. Inside the building are two large wooden panels bearing the names of those from Knutsford and district who gave their lives in the two wars. Within the grounds of the Cottage Hospital there is a statue of a soldier, Haron Baronian, shielding his eyes from the sun. The statue was commissioned by the Baronian family in memory of their son who was killed in action in Mesopotamia. The statue was originally sited at Brae Cottage, Legh Road until the family moved in the early 1930s.

It was then relocated temporarily to Booth Hall before being installed in its present location in 1977. Opposite St Cross Church on Mobberley Road sits a second memorial in the town, dedicated to those connected with the St Cross Parish. Fashioned from sandstone, the cross bears the names of those from the parish who died in the First World War. St John’s Church contains three oak panels, two for the First World War and one for the Second World War, bearing the names of those of the parish who gave their lives. The Methodist Church contains a carved oak panel with the names of those of the church who fell in World War One, as well as those who had served and returned. In Tatton Park a stone memorial commemorates the members of the different parachute regiments which trained in the area and served in the war from 1940 to 1945. The Conservative Club holds the final memorial in the town bearing the names of members of the Knutsford Working Men’s Conservative and Unionist Club who gave their lives in the two conflicts and those who served with the colours.

Wattsian Knutsford

Richard Harding Watt was a glove merchant from Manchester who left his mark on Knutsford’s skyline. Once referred to as “the Gaudi of Knutsford”, he completed his first signature building, “The Croft” on Legh Road in 1895 where he lived until his death in 1913. Watt was greatly inspired by Mediterranean architecture and brought a taste of Italy with many of the buildings he erected. Watt was also a great bird lover, so incorporated ledges and niches for birds on all his buildings. Visitors to Knutsford will undoubtedly notice the Gaskell Memorial Tower but a number of other fine examples of ‘Wattsian’ architecture lay within the town.

Kings Coffee House & Gaskell Memorial Tower

38

The most famous of Watt’s creations, this building is now home to La Belle Epoque restaurant. Designed by Watt and architect W Longworth, the building was opened in 1907 and shortly after it was expanded. The memorial tower is dedicated to Mrs Gaskell and features a copper bas-relief and a bust of the author.

It features a fantastic Italian mosaic floor and original period features.

The Kings Coffee House was named for the column which features the names of all English Monarchs and built to provide a venue for working men as an alternative to a public house.

The building was the offices of the Urban District Council in the early 20th century before they relocated to the former Prison Governor’s house on Toft Road.

Ruskin Rooms Watt was a fan of John Ruskin and admired his philosophies so when it came to building a social club for the laundry works it was named the Ruskin Recreation Rooms and bore a quote from his works. Built in 1902 and designed by Watt and architect Walter Aston, the building has had a number of uses over the years; in 1944 a Welcome Club for officers of the American Third Army was opened in the building by General Patton. It is currently an office building, home to, amongst others, the Forum of Private Business.

Museum in the Street

The Knutsford Museum in the Street was a Millennium project led by the Knutsford Lions with assistance from the late local historian Joan Leach and Peter Spooner of the Photographic Society. The idea was devised by a member of the club after a visit to Pontlevoy in France where they saw a similar scheme. Starting in Canute Place, the doublesided master board, which gives an overview of the scheme, directs visitors around the town centre showing the

40

locations of the original 8 boards. In 2010 an additional board was added on the Moor. Each board features a collection of old photographs and a history of the surrounding area. The photographs show the changes that have taken place in Knutsford over the past century and provide a remarkable glimpse into the past. They are strategically positioned to give visitors a leisurely tour of the town centre and provide a live then-and-now view of the town.
