The Mill


The Mill is a period drama set in the 1830s against the backdrop of the industrial revolution. The show is based on the real-life stories of people who worked at the Quarry Bank Mill in Cheshire and combined with some fictional characters and events.

How was Uni-versalEXTRAS Involved?

Uni-versalEXTRAS was an extras agency for The Mill Series 2, which was filmed in multiple locations across Cheshire in North West England. Due to the time in which the film was set, the film extras and background artistes had to fit certain criteria, for example in relation to hair colour and having no tattoos or visible piercings.

When watching The Mill, keep your eyes peeled for...

Villagers, Mill Workers and Apprentices
