Full Description

Before the high level bridges in New Mills were built the only crossing points of the deep gorges of the Rivers Goyt and Sett were low-level bridges like this one, built in the floor of the gorge and reached by steep roads paved with stone setts. The bridges were probably built towards the end of the 18th century when water-powered mills were first sited in the bottom of the gorges. (1)
