River Goyt, Torr Vale Mill
Torr Vale mill was built on the River Goyt in the steep sided Torrs Gorge which lies below the town of New Mills. The Mill was built for water-powered spinning by Daniel Stafford in 1788-1790.

With the progress of the Industrial Revolution, the mill was extensively rebuilt during the 1860s to use a combination of steam and water power and a weaving mill was added.

It is a Grade II* listed building.
River Goyt
The Goyt rises on the moors of Axe Edge, near the Cat and Fiddle Inn. It runs from the Errwood and Fernilee reservoirs, north of Buxton to Stockport where it joins the River Tame LinkExternal link to form the Mersey.

It is also fed by the River Etherow which flows from the Woodhead reservoirs and joins near Marple Bridge, the River Sett which joins at New Mills and Todd Brook which joins at Horwich End.
