    Welcome to New Mills & Whaley Bridge

    From history and heritage to art and culture, the towns and villages within the Goyt Valley offer something for everyone.

    Discover unique shops and delicious food and drink as you explore the attractive streets, lanes and alleyways of Whaley Bridge, New Mills and Chapel-en-le-Frith, and their eclectic mix of small, independent retailers selling everything from clothing, jewellery and gifts to art, crafts and local produce.

    Known as the ‘Gateway to the Goyt Valley’, the town of Whaley Bridge is located at the head of the scenic Peak Forest Canal; a great place for walks and wildlife-watching. This small village, below Toddbrook Reservoir, offers tranquil walks and a charming selection of shops, cafés, pubs and restaurants.

    The vibrant town of New Mills is set in an area of spectacular natural beauty, standing high above a natural rocky gorge known as The Torrs, where the River Sett joins the River Goyt. Punctuated by impressive viaducts and historic mill buildings, the town boasts a mix of independent shops, cafés and pubs, a lively programme of events and a thriving arts scene. The Torrs Riverside Park, known as the park ‘under the town’, is a superb place to walk, picnic and learn about the natural and industrial history of the area.
