Quarry Bank Mill

Quarry Bank Mill

Quarry Bank overflows with the atmosphere of the Industrial Revolution. A visit to the cotton mill, powered by Europe's most powerful working waterwheel, will certainly stimulate your senses. The clatter of machinery and hiss of steam engines is astonishing.

Take a guided tour of the Apprentice House, which housed the pauper children who worked in the mill.

Visit the stunning garden – the Greg family's picturesque valley retreat adjoining the mill. Stroll to Styal village, built by the Greg family to house the mill workers and still a thriving community, or walk through woods along the River Bollin.
