It had been a pleasure and privilige to have been able to host ScooterBob and knowing Gary France was keen to take him on tour to France within days I decided to take SB for a quick wizz around my hometown Knutsford prior to dispatching him to London.
After the park we take a stroll back through the town to buy ScooterBob a farewell capucinno.
Well that's it from me - thanks for reading and goodbye (or is it au revoir?) ScooterBob.
|Knutsford has many eclectic buildings created by Richard Harding Watt, mostly in an italianate style. Here we see Lisa from Atlanta and Mrs Nikos posing in front of the King's Coffee House and Gaskell Memorial Tower.|
|Pigeons and other birds sit on the Gaskell Memorial Tower looking down on ScooterBob.|
|A touch of off roading in typical spring flowers|
|Tatton Park, this is where I take my constitutionals. It is a large park immediately joining onto Knutsford and formerly the estate of the Egerton family with their baronial seat Tatton Hall. Shooting at harmless animals is not usually allowed here - Venison is normally available at the local Aldi supemarket.|
|The other side of Tatton Park is a good spot for plane spotting!|
|The first penny farthing museum and integral cafe - this is a where the philosophers meet hidden away in the centre of Knutsford!|
|I'm sure that BobSkoot would have been fascinated by these gentelmen's sporting bicycles! ScooterBob looks rather overwhelmed.|
|Gluten free chocolate brownie, honey cake and capucinno.|
|A difficult and challenging pose this, I require oxygen.|
|King Canute (Knútr in Old Norse) lends his name to Knutsford where he got his trousers wet in 1020 on his way to watch a home game of MU at Old Trafford (allegedly).|
