We are delighted to announce our project at Quarry Bank has been awarded a £3.9million grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund, helping to ensure long term conservation of the site.
One of the country’s most significant industrial heritage sites, Quarry Bank Mill is unique; today still containing the complete range of buildings of a self-sufficient mill complex. Currently run as a museum of the cotton-industry, the funding will be used to restore buildings never before seen by the public, including a worker’s cottage and the village shop. Quarry Bank House will also be opened up to the public, with plans for Buttress to make major improvements to its upper garden, including the restoration of a 1830s glasshouse.
George Osborne, MP for Tatton, announced the funding for the project, which is visited by over 173,000 people every year.
