NEW MILLS TOWN HALL CHRISTMAS LIGHTS

At the New Mills Town Council Meeting on 14th November 2022, IT WAS RESOLVED that NMTC would not be holding the usual Council Christmas Lights Switch-on Event at the Town Hall, but would instead be making a donation to the local Food Bank/s.

There will still be a Christmas Tree in front of the Town Hall, which will be lit, and the Town Hall itself will be decorated and lit as usual for the Christmas season.

New Mills

An Introduction

New Mills lies where the rivers Sett and Goyt join to become one of the principal tributaries of the River Mersey. The rivers flow through the town in a spectacular gorge, the Torrs, home to the Millennium Walkway. The Peak Forest Canal also passes through the town with a well established marina at Newtown. Much of the district is rural with large parts in agriculture mainly cattle and sheep.

Areas around Rowarth and Ollersett Moor are within the Peak District National Park with excellent footpath links and some open access land. Its rural hinterland and gateway to the Peak District, and proximity to the Manchester conurbation makes New Mills a popular place for walkers. The town is particularly well connected by rail to Manchester, Stockport and Sheffield.

Considerable industrial activity still takes place in the New Mills area, with companies involved in confectionery, engineering, quarrying, haulage, design and IT development.

New Mills was designated High peak's first Fairtrade town in 2006. The town centre has a wide range of independent specialist shops, indoor and outdoor markets and professional services. Bus and rail services link the town centre with outlying areas and surrounding villages.
