Heathfield Square was built in 1922 by the Knutsford Urban District Council as part of the government’s ‘Homes fit for Heroes’ campaign. The square is in one of Knutsford’s five Conservation Areas.
The blue plaque was installed as part of Knutsford Town Council’s First World War Commemorations Programme and was unveiled by Mayor of Knutsford, Cllr Peter Coan. There are sixteen other blue plaques in the town.
Town Clerk, Adam Keppel-Green said: “Blue plaques help bring the history of our town into everyday familiarity, and the new plaque at Heathfield Square will be a reminder of the heroes who returned from the Great War, and the heroes who did not.”
The Town Council launched a blue plaque scheme in 2015 and has since installed seven new plaques. Nominations for new blue plaques, and the details of existing plaques, can be found on the town council website.
