My wife and I paid another visit to Quarry Bank today - great to see the Mill open again and the Greg’s house. Still a really special place and was reminded of Hannah Greg’s links with Liverpool. Well worth a visit.

Clearly very popular. Expensive to get in at £18.95 each and left us feeling disappointed. It seems aimed at families with children, which is great but not us.
