AN exhibition displaying the finest railway destinations in Cheshire has steamed into Knutsford, stopping in town until April.

The ‘Marvellous Days Out’ poster exhibition, displaying 1930s-style posters evoking the golden age of British travel, can now be seen at Knutsford Heritage Centre, free of charge.

A huge hit when released last year, the exhibition is a coup for the heritage centre, off King Street, and will be on show until Saturday, April 7.

A Knutsford Heritage Centre spokesman said: “This exhibition, commissioned by the Mid-Cheshire Community Rail Partnership, features the designs of Nick Thompson from Chester-based Lemondrop Creative.

“Thanks to Sally Buttifant, from the partnership, we are now delighted to be able to host this exciting railway poster exhibition right here in the Knutsford Heritage Centre.

“We are offering our visitors the opportunity to see this amazing collection of iconic art-deco style railway posters, featuring railway stations along the Manchester to Chester rail line, including Knutsford.

“They are all around the theme of having a marvellous day out, encouraging people to use the Mid-Cheshire railway line.

“You will also be able to buy souvenirs from our gift shop including replicas of these iconic posters. Our range of items includes prints, postcards and a specially commissioned coffee/tea mug featuring the Knutsford poster and the train stops along the line.”

Knutsford is one of nine stops featured in stunning vintage poster format, with the iconic view of King Street and the Gaskell Memorial Tower on display to entice tourists.

The others are Manchester, Stockport, Altrincham, Hale, Lostock Gralam, Northwich, Delamere and Chester.

The exhibition opened on Tuesday, January 30.
