Torrs Riverside Park

UK»England»Derbyshire»Torrs Riverside Park

Torrs Riverside Park: 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 whose 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 160 metre long Millennium Walkway is suspended from the side of the gorge, above the point where the river flows over a large weir.
