Just off the main street and could be missed if you are looking for it! Through the walkway and up pops the heritage centre - it is a lovely little heritage centre explaining a lot of the history of Knutsford.

A lovely little heritage centre explaining a lot of the history of Knutsford. The tapestry, which took four years to complete by local people, is amazing in its detail. Well worth a visit.

This tapestry is remarkable for its detail of every building and street in the town, Also features an airborne Concorde. A very special place, free of charge but donations requested by helpful staff. A credit to this lovely historic town
