The Big Story












Hopefully, this website will explain the reasons for why and how Quarry Bank Mill was so successful.

Quarry Bank Mill is a building that no one could have ever imagined.

Yet a man called Samuel Greg built this enormous factory at Styal in Cheshire in 1784. If you'd like to know a bit more about how this factory came to being built, this summary might help you.
