Garden of Remembrance
At the end of the Second World War the local residents decided that they would create a Garden of Remembrance in High Lee Park. This can be found off St Mary’s Road close to the town centre. Head towards Marple along Market Street and St Mary’s Road goes off uphill on your right.
There is a Memorial Plaque on Torr Top opposite the car park remembering local civilians citizens who lost their lives in bombing raids

Remembering more recent sacrifices
Situated in the Garden of Remembrance there is a New Memorial Plaque, this is a recent addition dedicated to all service men and women lost since the Second World War. This recognises the armed forces and the civilian services, fire, police ambulance, men and women lost whilst serving our country and communities.


Scattered around the town you will find large planters – including ones at New Mills Central and Newtown train stations. There is a walk based around the planters’ sites and you are invited to pause for a while at each for a period of quiet reflection.
