Quarry Bank Mill and the neighbouring village of Styal, tucked away in the heart of the Cheshire countryside, offer us a microcosm of one of the most turbulent periods of English history: the Industrial Revolutions.

David Hanson's engaging narrative breathes life into the old documents from Quarry Bank Mill's rich archive and fills its rooms with real people, bringing the children, the mill and the village into sharp focus - not just those individuals who appeared as characters in the television series, but the many others who worked there throughout the century.

This is the story of the real children of The Mill.
