New Mills is, on the face of it, a standard North Derbyshire town most notable for being the home of Swizzels Matlow the sweetmakers and the Plain English society. It's called New Mills because many years ago there were cotton mills there. You could drive through it for years without knowing about The Torrs, an amazing set of crevices, rivers and bridges where the mills were built.
There are various houses placed precariously on top of the cliffs
The Torrs are now graced by a Millennium Walkway, linking up two previous inaccessible paths, which seems like a good use of public money
Here's one of the disused mills
