Alison McGovern is an administrator for the Cottonopolis Coglective and has been very kind to supply me with some words and pictures for the jaunt out to Stockport‘s Air Raid shelters.

Words by Alison McGovern
Steampunks Take Shelter: A fine day out was enjoyed by a group of 30-odd of Cottonopolis’s finest. On Sunday 12th January 2014 a party of intrepid explorers ventured into the depths of Stockport’s Air raid shelters. They ohhhhed and ahhhhhed at the sandstone tunnels, and shuddered and cringed at the ”facilities” that the unfortunate Stockportites would have used. After leaving the shelters, and fortified by pies and tea, the party hot-footed it to Stockport village vintage market, where they swooped upon many fine items, including buttons, mess jackets, books, hats, skirts and a coat made from genuine Yeti skin. More fortification followed with a splendid repast at The Arden Arms – Stockport’s hidden gem – with fantastic food and always a warm welcome for steampunks.

Cottonopolis’s next Jaunt takes place on Sunday 2nd February 2014 when they will be visiting Ellan Road Steam Engine and visiting the Failsworth mill emporium of delights.
