Originally Knutsford’s main post office, the building now houses Giovanni’s restaurant on the ground floor and offices and a flat above.
Once owned by Richard Harding Watt, the man who transformed the townscape of Knutsford with a series of eccentric buildings, he intended to move the post office into a more central location in the town. However his plans were met with indifference by the town council so he contented himself with adding a sundial in 1908, and balcony.
Two type K6 telephone kiosks designed by Giles Gilbert Scott in 1935 stand outside the building which remained the town’s main post office until the 1990s.These are Grade II listed.
Enjoy a self-guided visit and take a selfie from the telephone kiosks!
