Today, en route to Liverpool, we stopped into the Quarry Bank Mill. This is a mill that has been standing since the early Industrial Revolution. It specialized in textile production, and had facilities to turn cotton into thread and thread into cloth!
We toured the Mill, examining all the various machines. It was so awe-inspiring to see these machines in action. These machines were hundreds of years old and still worked well. As a Technology Studies Concentrator with a History Major, I was pretty much in paradise. These same machines represented so much major progress for the human race! They transformed the way thread and cloth were created and shaped Britain's history. Enjoy the few pictures and video below!
