KNUTSFORD 2000

The Knutsford Tapestry is a great achievement. Hand stitched by Knutsford citizens - with more than 6 million stitches and an amazing 52 miles of wool, the tapestry measuring 40ft in 3 sections is an impressive sight. Many of Knutsford's houses, shops and buildings are depicted along with street scenes, Knutsford's previous MP Martin Bell, the Penny Farthing Race a once a decade event and a sign indicating "Bugs Life" to be showing at the Cinema.

The idea for the tapestry began in 1997 with Jennifer Holbrook and has now materialised into something already compared with the Bayeux Tapestry which depicts the time period of William the Conqueror.

With so much changing in the town the Knutsford Tapestry has already become a historical record of the history and architecture in Knutsford in the year 2000.
