Guide shows what town has to offer residents and visitors
THE 2014-15 edition of the Knutsford Town Guide has now been released.
At 56 pages, the guide covers all aspects of Knutsford and focuses on detailing what Knutsford has to offer to visitors and new residents.
The free booklet, which was produced by Burrows Communications at no cost to the town council, is the 30th edition of the official town guide, the earliest of which was in the 1920s.
It was compiled by town clerk Adam Keppel-Garner, with content provided by Knutsford visitor attractions, such as the Heritage Centre and Gaskell Society.
“My aim was to make it as comprehensive as possible so, for the first time, it properly showcases the Heritage Centre, Little Theatre, Brook Street Heritage Site and other attractions in the town,” said Adam.
The guide also features an A2 pull-out map of Knutsford, as well as sections on markets, the Moor and Heaths, churches, sports and leisure, history and the town centre.
Adam added: “The town council also decided to include a page on war memorials in the town, given the year and increased interest.
“We would like to thank all those who submitted content, the advertisers who fund the guides and photographers, such as Jonathan Farber and Paul Warpole, who provided some fantastic photography, which really sets the guide apart from previous editions.”
A total of 4,000 copies of the guide have been produced, and copies are available from a number of areas in the town, including the library, Heritage Centre and council offices.
An e-edition can also be viewed on the town council website.
“We have so many fantastic features in Knutsford that we can proudly shout about, and that’s exactly what this guides does,” added Adam.
