Knutsford Heritage Centre is housed in a reconstructed 17th century timber framed building previously known as Musgrave's Yard. Evidence of its previous existence as a tinsmith, ironmonger and brazier is clear, with a forge, anvil and an original set of bellows now preserved all on display.

Once no longer able to run as an ironmonger's, the site had sadly been left to ruin over the years but in 1988, The Groundwork Trust invested £100,000 to renovate and develop the area into what is now The Heritage Centre.

Working as an independent charity, The Heritage Centre continues to grow and develop, always aiming to 'protect, present and promote Knutsford's rich and diverse heritage for the benefit of its residents and visitors.'
