The Heritage and Information Centre is conveniently located near the Central Railway Station (on the Manchester to Sheffield line), adjacent to the Bus Station. Newtown Station (on the Manchester to Buxton line) is three quarters of a mile away.
The Centre is on the track leading down into the 'Torrs', a dramatic gorge above which the town perches. The Torrs - 'the Park under the Town' - provides access to an area of spectacular natural beauty which includes mills and the ruined foundations of mills and weirs lying in the bottom of the gorges, attracted to the site at the end of the eighteenth century by the water power potential.
The Torrs path links with the Sett Valley Trail along the old railway track to Hayfield and the Goyt Way, a long distance route linking the Manchester conurbation with the Goyt Valley and the Peak District National Park.
New Mills Heritage & Information Centre is housed in a converted stone building of great character and consists of a shop and sales area selling publications, maps and trail guides; fixed and temporary display areas; an urban studies centre, and a viewing platform over the Torrs gorge below.
The Centre is fully accessible for disabled people and light refreshments and toilet facilities are available.
