As I use to live in New Mills for almost 9 years, and with all our New Mills clients, it is a great place to walk, lots of countryside, open spaces, river routs, meadows, woodland, hills…
“Many, who have only driven through New Mills before, will not be prepared for the dramatic start and finish to this inspiring walk.
Entering the Torrs Riverside Park, deep in a gorge below the centre of New Mills, it immediately becomes apparent that this walk is different from any other in Derbyshire. It is very special as only 20 years ago Torrs Gorge, now so beautiful, was notorious for dereliction and the heavily polluted river.
After leaving the gorge, the walk follows an easterly route through fields, before joining the Peak Forest Canal for a relaxing stroll along the busy canal bank. Newtown Marina is passed on the way before going under the A6015 to walk through open countryside.
On the route back to New Mills your walk takes you through the Torrs Riverside Park again by the side of the River Goyt.
A further surprise waits in the form of the spectacular Torrs Millennium Walkway for about half of its 125 yards length it hugs a tall retaining wall, before running along pillars rising from the river bed. The walkway forms the final link in the 225 mile long Midshires Way.”
