Could you tell me if Gannon Square, Heathside
is/was? Why was it called Gannon? Do you know of a house called
either Park View or Tatton View?
answers: Gannon Square is now no more. At the present time
(August 2000) bulldozers are at work there and all traces have
gone. The square was situated off Gaskell Avenue and had quite
attractive small terraced houses on three sides. It was named
by its builder John Gannon, a stone mason in the town. Some of
his work is more enduring as he built most of the wall around
His descendant, May Gannon, now lives in Canada and has been
over to Knutsford several times to do research.
The house you seek, named Tatton View may be the one of that
name on Queen Street. It has an attractive terracotta name stone
with the date.
