Knutsford

We passed through Knutsford on our way down south last year and it was only then that it struck us – when we saw an allusion to it on a building that it was named after Cnut Sveinsson aka King Canute or Cnut the Great, he who famously did not hold back the waves though it seems he was proving to sycophantic courtiers that he could not do that rather than attempting to show that he could.

We thought we’d stop for a look on our way back up this year.

This building had deco aspects in the rounded elements:-

Knutsford; Art Deco?

And on the right here was the one next door:-

Knutsford Again; Art Deco?

Tesla had deco styling on the pillar, canopy and roofline:-

One of my interests is the Festival of Britain so I found this plaque worthy of note:-

Wesley Commemoration, Knutsford

Knutsford is a typical English town with quite narrow streets. I don’t know why the bunting was out:-

Knutsford, King Street again
