Quarry Bank House
In 2006 the opportunity arose to purchase Quarry Bank House, home to Samuel and Hannah Greg, the creators and owners of Quarry Bank Mill. Situated directly next to the Mill, from here they were able to keep a close eye on their growing business but also to sculpt beautiful gardens, develop the village of Styal to house their workers and bring up their 13 children.
By acquiring the last piece of the jigsaw, the National Trust had the opportunity to preserve Quarry Bank as a complete early industrial community, and to share the stories of the entire community with visitors. This was made possible thanks to the fact that many individuals chose to leave a gift to the National Trust in their wills, collectively they made the acquisition possible. Quarry Bank House opens to the public this autumn.
