Knutsford


Knutsford is located 14 miles (23 km) southwest of Manchester and 9 miles (14 km) northwest of Macclesfield. Situated close to the M6 motorway with the M62 and M56 just to the north. Manchester Airport is on the doorstep and inter city train journey from London to Euston takes just over two hours.


It is situated on the Cheshire Plain, between the Peak District in the South Pennines to the east and the Clwydian Range in the Welsh mountains to the west. Knutsford is an affluent residential area in Cheshire’s Golden Triangle and a dormitory town for people working in Manchester.


Knutsford’s main town centre streets, Princess Street (also known locally as Top Street) and King Street lower down (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 with 1000 acres of beautiful parkland and herds of red and fallow deer. The Tatton estate was home to the Egerton


family, and has given its name to Tatton parliamentary constituency, which also includes the neighbouring communities of Alderley Edge and Wilmslow.
