Denton was the largest of the six great hat manufacturing centres of Industrial Britain during the 19th and 20th centuries, and hatting companies within the town specialised in the production of felted fur and woollen hats. Denton hats were exported all over the world from North America to Australia. During the late 19th century and early 20th century Denton was the home to some of the largest and most mechanised felt hat factories in the world such as J Moores & Sons which still stands today. Both Denton and its sister town of Haughton were largely dependent upon hat manufacturing for employment until the decline of this industry in the mid-20th century.
