About Knutsford:

Knutsford is an affluent town and civil parish in the unitary authority area of Cheshire East and the ceremonial county of Cheshire, in North West England. It is about 15 miles (24 km) southwest of Manchester and 11 miles northwest of Macclesfield.
Knutsford is situated on the Cheshire Plain, between the Peak District in the South Pennines to the east and the Clwydian Range in the Welsh mountains to the west. Knutsford’s proximity to Manchester has both now and historically helped it become a commuter town for those employed in Manchester. Today the town’s location gives residents easy access to Merseyside as well as Manchester. Knutsford is known for being in the Golden Triangle (Cheshire), and it has also been home to many notable residents such as Craig Cash, Barbara Knox and Gary Barlow.
Knutsford’s main town centre streets, Princess Street (also known locally as Top Street) and King Street lower down (also known as Bottom Street), form the “hub” of the town. At one end of the narrow King Street is an entrance to Tatton Park. The Tatton estate was home to the Egerton family, and has given its name to Tatton parliamentary constituency, which also includes the neighbouring communities of Alderley Edge and Wilmslow. Former Parliamentary representatives include the BBC war correspondent Martin Bell, who stood as an Independent in 1997 to defeat the disgraced former Conservative Party MP, Neil Hamilton.

Knutsford town centre has several restaurants and pubs, coffee shops, boutiques, antique shops and art galleries.
Knutsford has a medium sized supermarket, in Preston based Booths Supermarkets, also an Aldi, a Little Waitrose, a Sainsbury’s Local and two Co-op stores (one on Princess Street and one on Parkgate Lane).
Tesco used to have a small shop in the town centre, which closed many years ago. The retailer had hoped to open a larger store on the edge of the town on Mobberley Road, but councillors in Mobberley objected to the development, thinking it might result in more cars travelling through their village.
In 2008, Aldi announced plans to open a superstore in Knutsford, but not until September 2012 did construction work start. The store officially opened in July 2013.
Barclays has a large campus site at Radbroke Hall on Toft Road just outside Knutsford, employing several thousand staff in IT and support functions.
