Hello fans! I’m back once again with another instalment of my holiday blog. From my staycation in the sunny climbs of Cheshire, I bring to you my personal experiences at some of Cheshire’s most popular tourist attractions. This last week, we visited a number of interesting and very entertaining places. Top of the list was the Hack Green Secret Nuclear Bunker. Having played a vital role in British air defence for over sixty years, the bunker at Hack Green represents an imagination-inspiring attraction. Built in the 1950s, the nuclear bunker would have been the location of a regional government in the event of a nuclear war. Today, the bunker hosts a Cold War museum, which details the period in which humanity faced the greatest threat of nuclear war.
With the sun shining down on us and while we were in Knutsford, we decided to pay a visit to Tatton Park. The mansion, the manor house, the gardens, the farm and the deer park all pay homage to the illustrious history of the area. With the gardens in full bloom, we were lucky enough to capture lots of photos while testing out our newly purchased camera and my budding photography skills! We also enjoyed a spot of lunch at the famous Stables Restaurant where the potatoes and salads from the kitchen garden were simply sumptuous!
Finally, bringing the day to an apt conclusion, we spent the afternoon at the Knutsford Heritage Centre. Located on King Street in Knutsford, the Heritage Centre houses numerous artefacts related to Knutsford’s history. Actually, we spent longer than we’d expected to looking at the 40-foot long triptych which shows of the town’s history.
Grateful for the weather being on our side and enjoying the rich history in whose midst we live was a great experience. As a family, we’ve really been enjoying our staycation and I can’t wait to update you all on our next local adventures!
