Heroes of Adventure
'Heroes all, unknown or known to fame'
In 2014, to mark the centenary of the First World War, Quarry Bank explored the effects of the war on the Greg family and workers alike in our exhibition Heroes of Adventure.
Although the exhibition has now closed, it is important that their stories are not forgotten. The exhibition followed the lives of siblings Madge, Helen, Arthur and Bobby, as well as Arthur's fiancee Marian, and mill workers and cousins Edward Cooper and Alfred Sprowson.
