Known as the ‘Gateway to the Goyt Valley’, the town of Whaley Bridge is located at the head of the scenic Peak Forest Canal; a great place for walks and wildlife-watching. This small village, below Toddbrook Reservoir, offers tranquil walks and a charming selection of shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants.
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.
