Exhibition: A Healthy Profit

In a new exhibition we explore the physical, mental and emotional toil of working in a mill.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

What did it feel like to lose a finger, to suffer from cotton lung or return to work days after giving birth? Discover the impact of mill work on the body, the treatments given to workers, and how this historical story is relevant to our health and wellbeing today.

What is Gift Aid?

Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points.

Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:

  • Gift Aid Admission
  • Standard Admission

If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you a clear choice between the Gift Aid Admission prices and the Standard Admission prices at the admission point. It's entirely up to you which ticket you choose.

Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.

An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below:

  Gift Aid Standard
Amount paid by visitor £11.00 £10.00
Tax refund from Government* £2.75 £0.00
Total received by the National Trust £13.75 £10.00

 

*Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.

Please note...

Free for all National Trust members. 

Please note: members can be scanned at the garden entrances, but if you need to buy a ticket for Quarry Bank please go to Visitor Reception. Apprentice House tour tickets available from Visitor Reception, you can book onto worker's cottage tours at Styal Village Hub.

We advise early arrival as there's lots to see and do.

Parking is free for visitors to Quarry Bank and its estate.
