Lucy Garner and Esther Price

Come and visit the new exhibition we have put together to explore the fact that inspired fiction in the Channel 4 series 'The Mill'.

Series 2 has been filmed and will air this summer. Series 1 followed the conflict between the Greg family and the workers in the 1830s.

We have props and costumes from the series and exclusive behind the scenes footage.

Quarry Bank is a place of striking contrasts: industry and nature, a river valley and working farmland, a noisy mill next to a picturesque garden. It tells a story of social change and industrial revolution, mill owner and mill worker, the power of nature and the ingenuity of man; of benevolence and exploitation.
