New Mills

About

The vibrant town of New Mills is set in an area of spectacular natural beauty, standing high above a natural rocky gorge known as The Torrs, where the River Sett joins the River Goyt. Punctuated by impressive viaducts and historic mill buildings, the town boasts a mix of independent shops, cafes and pubs, a lively programme of events and a thriving arts scene.

The Torrs Riverside Park, known as the park ‘under the town’, is a superb place to walk, picnic and learn about the natural and industrial history of the area. The park links to the Sett Valley Trail, Goyt Way and Midshires Way as well as to longer national trails. The Goyt Way is now linked at Torr Vale Mills by the Millennium Walkway, an innovative 175-yard aerial walkway spanning the otherwise inaccessible cliff wall.

Other walks and trails around the area include the Town Trail - a short walking trail beginning at the heritage centre and the Trespass Trail, which commemorates the mass trespass of Kinder in 1932 - a major catalyst to the creation of today's national parks. This circular trail starts at New Mills Heritage Centre and follows much of the original route taken by the trespassers.

Linked to the Torrs, the Sett Valley Trail is the two and half miles recreational trail leading to Hayfield, a small picturesque village situated at the foot of Kinder Scout. The Peak Forest Canal towpath links with hundreds of miles of footpaths and allows easy access to the 16 locks of Marple, as well as to the restored Bugsworth Basin, while High Lee Hall and Park is an attraction recreation area with gardens, woodland, a recently planted orchard and large playground.

New Mills Heritage and Information Centre is is open daily 11am-4pm (except Mondays) and is fully accessible for disabled people, with light refreshments, shop and toilet facilities available.
