The narrow pavements of a Cheshire town, built to stop romantic walks between couples in the 18th Century, are to be torn-up and widened.
King Street in Knutsford was paved, more than 220 years ago, thanks to the funding of a local aristocrat. She ordered the pavements be narrowed to ensure no-one could walk arm-in-arm.
Those restricted walkways endured through the 19th and 20th Centuries, but will not survive the 21st. The local council says the street must now be made accessible to everyone.
