Sacha Parkinson as Miriam and Katherine Morley as Lucy

Lucy Garner (Katherine Morley)

Lucy is dreading the day her best friend Esther leaves the Apprentice House. Their friendship after Esther’s departure has its ups and downs but in the end they are there for each other when it counts. Lucy realises she has to look to life beyond the Apprentice House.

Miriam Catterall (Sacha Parkinson)

Miriam is nearing the end of her apprenticeship but finds her mind occupied with love rather than work when she meets and falls for freed slave Peter.

The fact: Lucy Garner was an apprentice who ran away from Quarry Bank Mill with Esther Price. Beyond that little more is known of Lucy. Miriam is a fictional character.
