The Quarry Bank Project
A story of humanity at the edge of revolution
Quarry Bank has all the threads of an epic story – we need your help to tie them together.
As part of the Quarry Bank Project we’ve launched a £1.9 million appeal to help us reunite and recreate the compelling stories of Quarry Bank, one of the world’s first industrial communities and key to the story of the Industrial Revolution.
Improving your experience
By seeking to open the mill owner’s house and the worker’s cottage; by restoring the upper garden and northern woods and refreshing the mill, Quarry Bank has the potential to be transformed from ‘just a mill’ to an entire early industrial landscape.
Breathing new life into the mill
We will provide better access with a new entrance from ground floor level and a lift to access all five levels, opening 2018. This will enable you and your family to enjoy all areas of the mill. In addition, we will change the stories that we tell in the mill as we begin to spread current stories across the whole site.
