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 whole area of the Torrs is visually, and historically, interesting. The main elements of the Hydro, Millennium Walkway and Heritage Centre all have their own reviews and should all be visited.

I love this walk the viaducts, rocks, old remains off bygone mills and the millenium walkway and the 3-4 mile walk makes this an excellent afternoon outing.

This park combines the natural beauty of the rivers with interesting industrial history and the striking modern Millennium walkway around the longest continually operating mill in English history. It also has excellent connections to the Peak Forest Canal and Goyt Way.

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.
