There are lots of fun events lined up. We've got talks, walks, exhibitions and outdoor theatre. Families can try fun crafts and come along to Victorian themed days.
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 commissioned and will air next 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.
A Lady of Letters
Hannah Greg was wife to Quarry Bank founder Samuel Greg.
This exhibition explores her extraordinary life and her contribution to the welfare of the apprentices and mill workers.
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.
