In Knutsford to meet my walking group - The Irregulars, LDWA - for a days walk. Our meeting place was a car park about a hundred yards from this location. So The opportunity for Gemini Man and myself to come and have a look was just too good not to miss. We soon located what we were after in the location given but the building no longer is used as a the Town Hall.

Visited with Wrose. The attached building looks as if it has been converted into offices.
