Revealing Oldknow's Legacy

Samuel Oldknow, a Lancashire born muslin manufacturer, revolutionised Marple and Mellor, creating an industrial outpost nestled between Stockport and the Peak District. 

This is part of a £2.3million project, Revealing Oldknow's Legacy: Mellor Mill and the Peak Forest Canal in Marple, which is supported by a £1.5million grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund.

We're celebrating his achievements in the area and getting people involved with an exciting programme of events and activities.
