Great Rail Journeys

Great Rail Journeys

Knutsford was featured on a recent BBC2 Great Rail Journey programme featuring Michael Portillo in January 2016.Knutsford Heritage Centre worked with Boundless TV on the research for this programme during 2015. For the programme Michael Portillo visited Heathwaite House where Elizabeth Gaskell the town’s famous authoresslived as a child, the Unitarian Chapel where she is buried, and the Gaskell Tower built in 1907 by Richard Harding Watt in her memory. Diane Stenson accompanied Michael Portillo who chatted with him about Elizabeth Gaskell’s mostfamous novel ‘Cranford’, the inspiration which she drew from the many buildings and features of the town.

The picture here shows Diane Stenson, Michael Portillo and Val Bryant (Trustee) in front of the Gaskell Tower
