Step inside Quarry Bank House
" The romantic beauty of Quarry Bank delighted me and the possibility of occasionally escaping from Manchester to such a place renewed my hopes."
Quarry Bank House
Quarry Bank House is a perfect example of early Industrial Revolution social change. Built close to the mill, Samuel Greg and his wife wanted to be at the very heart of the business operation and be involved with various aspects of mill life. With twelve children, the house became a family home and a lively hub of debate, discussion and education.
