The Behind the scenes section of The Fashion Museum in Bath has a notice board that visitors can use to recommend other fashionable places of interest. Amongst the numerous notes I found one with a distinctive, Northern, feel to it. In my youth I often found myself sat on the Transpennine Express, calling at Manchester Piccadilly, which passed through Stockport. From the train you use to be able to see a tall factory chimney with hat museum writing down the length of it in white capital letters and this always intrigued me and I often pointed it out to anyone I was travelling with; mainly my mother and younger sister. My sister and I finally visited the Hat Works about seven years now and I didn’t regret the expense. Our visit to Stockport coincided with an exhibition of swimming caps, I seem to remember. If you’re a hat lover, as I am, the Hat Works is a must.
