History

Caption for Knutsford, Royal George Hotel, King Street C1955

Winding around the village is the Bridgewater Canal. Cut between 1759 and 1765, it was the first canal built in England and, along with the Industrial Revolution, which was then also taking place, it was to change the world.

First Day At School
