Channel 4 factually inspired drama ’The Mill’ based on Quarry Bank

We are thrilled that Channel 4 has commissioned its first factually inspired drama based on Quarry Bank, called 'The Mill', which will show what life at the mill might have been like.

‘The Mill’ will give you a preview of why documenting the real life stories of the mill workers, that form part of the work in our recently launched £1.4 million appeal, is so important.

We need your help, please donate today and make sure the true Quarry Bank stories of the Mill workers and the owners, are revealed and told.

Visit Quarry Bank

Britain is the nation it is today thanks to places like Quarry Bank.

Help us raise £1.4 million to complete Quarry Bank

Quarry Bank was once part of one of the largest cotton spinning businesses in the UK. The mastermind behind it was Samuel Greg, and his wife, Hannah.

Together, they built a unique factory community that helped Britain drive the Industrial Revolution. Our aim is to reveal the full story of perhaps the world's premier early industrial community and tell the individual stories of the mill owners, workers and apprentices - before it's too late.

Without your donation, part of the fabric of our British heritage will never be truly revealed.
