Knut's Ford Or Not?

Home » Newsroom » Knut's Ford Or Not?

An archaeologist with strong links to Cheshire will explain Knutsford's Viking past as part of the celebrations to mark 1,000 since King Canute's visit to the town.

As Knutsford is celebrating 1,000 years of history since Canute famously came to the town and forded the River Lily, the Knutsford Promenades Community Association has announced a keynote lecture will be given on 'Cheshire and the Viking World'.

Professor Richard Morris OBE is presenting this illustrated lecture, which is hosted by The Tabley House Collection Trust.

(My betting is someone called Cnut once pitched up around here but whether or not it was the King himself, well ...... Ed.)
