Today saw our first visit of the year to a National Trust property – we are starting early! With freezing weather forecast we needed somewhere with great outdoor space and indoor activities that would hold the children’s attention. So Quarry Bank Mill, Styal was the obvious solution.It some became clear that a lot of people had the same idea!)
It was a beautiful frosty day so first stop was a quick walk and play on the playground.
Skimming stones across the frozen pond.
And watching the Robin.
Then inside to discover how cotton was made over the years. A perfect end to the Christmas break ( and a subtle way to ‘wake up’ the children’s thinking!). We love the National Trust!
