Quarry Bank Mill  image

One of Britain's greatest industrial heritage sites, showing how a complete industrial community lived

Quarry Bank overflows with the atmosphere of the Industrial Revolution. A visit to the cotton mill, powered by Europe's most powerful working waterwheel will certainly stimulate your senses. The clatter of machinery and hiss of steam engines make an astonishing noise. Take a guided tour of the Apprentice House, which housed the pauper children who worked in the mill.

Visit the stunning garden, the Greg family's picturesque valley retreat adjoining the mill. Stroll to Styal village, built by the family to house the mill workers and still a thriving community, or walk through woods along the River Bollin.
