Quarry Bank Mill is opening its doors for free on Saturday 13th September as part of Heritage Open Days.

Come and discover how innovation and energy are at the heart of the mill, and how we’re recreating history by generating power today. Storytellers will be spinning yarns about the mill’s past, and you can follow the clues to discover more on an energy trail. Green technologies at the mill include an under-construction Kaplan hydroelectric turbine, historic steam engines and one the most powerful working waterwheel in Europe.

Green Living day, in partnership with Good Energy and the Centre for Sustainable Energy, is all about sharing what we’ve learnt at this special place so you can have a go too.
