watermills Quarry Bank celebrates 25 years of opening this June

Quarry Bank Mill formally opened to the public as a working mill in 1978. Prior to its acquisition by the National Trust, the mill had been operating for 175 years. To mark the anniversary the National Trust are planning a range of activities throughout the month of June to make the most of the story of the Mill and the cotton industry. The Mill Manager's Office (restored to its 1900's glory) will be opened. Other activities include Morris and clog dancing, traditional children's games, and folk music.

June 16th will be a free entry day to anyone who has worked in the cotton industry on production of their union card or other written proof.
