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

Series 2 aired this summer and continued to follow the conflict between the Greg family and the workers.

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.
