Stockport is now part of Greater Manchester but was once a “border town” – half in Cheshire and half in Lancashire. Its history lies in the great industrial boom of the 19th century when Stockport was the hat-producing capital of the UK.
No hats are produced there now – but there’s a Hat-Works Museum full of interesting memorabilia of the golden age of Stockport hatting. See over 400 hats from around the world. It’s worth a visit if you’re a budding milliner – or just fancy some inspiration for Ladies’ Day at the races.
Another vestige of Stockport’s booming 19th-century trade is the mighty Stockport viaduct. This imposing 27-arch brick structure still brings all the mainline trains into town from Manchester and Liverpool over the River Mersey. It was immortalised in the paintings of none other than L.S. Lowry, the famous local artist – more usually known for his depictions of nearby Salford.
Today the town is a still a thriving metropolitan centre with some 130,000 residents. As in any busy urban centre, there’s plenty of scope for modern-day accidents to happen. Luckily, you don’t have to rely just on Victorian-age technology today. If you are based in the town and looking for an accident solicitor in Stockport, make the most of a modern national company to find the best advice for you.
