|We start our walk from the car park just off the main one way road through Knutsford, King Street. There is an interesting variety of architecture in this small town, named after the Danish King Canute, who supposedly forded the River Lily in 1016. The town appears in the Domesday Book as Cunetesford.|
|If you keep your eyes open as you wander around, you will notice a number information plaques detailing the history behind many of the buildings.|
