Walking tours and hikes

New Mills offers the walker a delightful experience, whatever kind of walk you may be seeking.  From short easy walks to day long hikes, or even long distance paths, New Mills has them all.

Built above the sandstone gorge known as The Torrs, which forms the confluence of the Rivers Sett and Goyt, development of the town from the original corn mill to the present day can be traced through from the industrial heritage of coal and cotton up to the modern day. The influence of the rivers can be seen in the plethora of bridges that span them, from the small footbridges that allowed workers to make their way to their employment, to the renowned and stunning Millennium Walkway which completed the Goyt Way and the Midshires Way long distance path.

The gorge, the rivers, the canal and the surrounding moors and hills allow the walker to experience varied landscapes, helped along their way by approximately 200 footpaths.

Access to New Mills is no problem either.  With two railway stations complimented by an array of bus services and sited just off the A6, New Mills is nearer than you might think.
