Nearly 100 feet below the town of New Mills lies the Torrs Gorge, an area of fascinating geology and heritage.
Here the Rivers Sett and Goyt come together, their power was harnessed for over 200 years by mills. Discover mill ruins, weirs, cobbled tracks and archways of bridges towering dramatically overhead.
As you walk along this impressive, but relatively little known, natural feature you are surrounded by a rich industrial heritage spanning several hundred years of the history of New Mills. The spectacular Millennium Walkway is suspended from the side of the gorge, above the point where the river flows over a large weir.
The Millenium Walkway
Explore the Torrs and the Riverside Park from the spectacular Millenium Walkway. It's a 160m long walkway that links New Mills, the Torrs and the Riverside Park. Follow the Midshires Way to discover Mousley Bottom Local Nature Reserve.
