Quarry Bank Mill was run by five generations of the Greg family, and there's an exhibition about the family, including a recreation of the mill offices. Mr Monkey wanted to know what they kept in the safe in the back room, but he wasn't allowed to find out.
There's a short game about managing a cotton mill at the BBC History website, and you can read about Samuel Greg at the Spartacus Educational website.
