From Our Editors

Stockport Council takes pride in their city’s history, running six museums, with a seventh undergoing a full refurbishment. They encourage modern-day visitors to take a step back in time and venture to blackout-era Britain through the labyrinthine network of underground tunnels that served as air raid shelters during the Blitz, and hark back to their industrial past with a Hat Works museum displaying 20 fully restored and functional Victorian machines, as well as contemporary advances in millinery and textiles. Stockport Museum ties together the diverse strands of the city’s past into one cohesive narrative, ranging from hidden archaeological treasures through rapid industrialisation to the developments of the last 100 years.
