Denton has a long history of hat-making, particularly felt hats. The earliest recording of the Denton felt hat industry goes back to 1702. By the end of the 20th century, Denton was well known for its felt hat making supremacy. Despite some ups and downs, the Denton hatting industry survived into the 20th century, however, the last hat factory was closed in 1980. The well-known slogan, ‘If you want to get ahead, get a hat’, comes from Denton; as does, the phrase, ‘mad as a hatter’, due to the mercury used in the felting process.
