From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
New Mills is a town in Derbyshire, England. It is approximately 8 miles (13 km) south-east of Stockport and 15 miles (24 km) from Manchester, at the confluence of the rivers Goyt and Sett, close to the border of Cheshire. The town stands above the Torrs, a 70 feet (21 m) deep gorge, cut through Woodhead Hill Sandstone of the Carboniferous period. It is on the north-western edge of the Peak District, England’s first national park.

New Mills has a population of approximately 12,000.

New Mills was first noted for coal mining, then for cotton spinning, bleaching and calico printing. New Mills was served by the Peak Forest Canal, three railway lines and the A6 trunk road. Redundant mills were bought up in the mid-twentieth century by sweet manufacturer Swizzels Matlow. New Mills was a stronghold of Methodism.
