Friends of the Moor do Canute’s Crossing

This year will see the fifth Knutsford Promenades take place from Thursday 7 to 10 September.

Delighted by the success of the 2016 events, the Knutsford Promenades team will again be organising a town wide celebration of our heritage as part of the national annual Heritage Open Days festival.

Last year some 34 events and sites formed part of a four-day programme which celebrated 1,000 years of Knutsford’s history since, as the town legend has it, King Canute forded the River Lily in 1016.
Richard Harding Watt, Elizabeth Gaskell and Sir Henry Royce were just three of the historic figures whose links with Knutsford were celebrated as home and business owners opened their premises to the public, businesses stage special events, and the whole community got together to celebrate Canute’s Crossing led by artist Russell Kirk and the Chester Vikings.
