With the opening of its new Power Galleries, Quarry Bank Mill in Styal, Wilmslow, Cheshire, can claim to be "the only place in Britain where both key sources of power (in use) during the Industrial Revolution can be seen working in an original setting". The galleries feature the existing great iron water wheel and the re-installed 1840 Boulton and Watt-type steam engine. Tel: 01625 527468
