Torrs Riverside Park and Millennium Walkway

As part of my effort to get fit and lose weight, me and Hazel revisited the MIllennium Walkway for the first time in 6-7 years. It was a 2.5 mile walk from where we parked the car, but well worth the effort.

The Millennium walkway is located where the rivers Sett and Goyt meet, and the power of which has been used by mills for over 200 years. The mills are now largely ruins, although I did notice part of one the mills being used by a local business. It’s a great walk for the family to enjoy, and as unusual a place as you’re likely to come across. Commonly referred to as the “Park under the town”. Directions below.
