We walk the dogs here most days, always something new to see and do, th river changes so much, as does the flora and fauna. ; a gentle peaceful place to sit and have a picnic on a hot day, go paddling in the river

The Torrs is a very deep gorge in New Mills that now has an amazing Millenium Walkway constructed over the river below. We took the dogs for a lovely walk along here towards the evening and really enjoyed the expereince.

Lovely park to walk through, but the steps down from the Heritage Ctr are difficult. The way down from the other end (along Station Road) is easier. Not very much in the way of seating; mostly built to walk through. Has an old heritage mill,...More

The Torrs is very interesting and well worth a visit it can be easily combined with a walk along the Peak Forrest canal to Buxworth or Whaley Bridge.
