Letter of Intent received for Quarry Bank Mill conservation project working for the National Trust, works starting in June for three months duration. Restoration works taking place on several listed buildings; Quarry Bank House, Workers Cottage “Oak Cottage” and the Hub Building also based in the old Village.
The properties are currently suffering from water ingress and are in need of an internal & external overhaul, accompanied by a Mechanical and Electrical upgrade bringing the properties back into service, making the properties available for public use and part offices for Quarry Bank staff.
Quarry Bank House is a perfect example of early Industrial Revolution social change. The home of the Greg family, it was built close to the mill. Samuel Greg, founder of Quarry bank, 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.
