The Bike Shed is situated at New Mills Marina and sleeps up to 10 people. It is on the Peak Forest Canal situated in New Mills, a traditional market town of some 10,000 inhabitants in the High Peak District of Derbyshire.

As well as a canal running through the town, the River Sett flows through the spectacular Torr Gorge close to the town centre before merging with the River Goyt to become one of the principal tributaries of the River Mersey.

Overlooking the rugged and beautiful Peak District, New Mills Marina offers moorings within easy reach of Whaley Bridge and Buxworth to the south and Marple to the north and from there on to the junction with the Ashton Canal and the famed Cheshire Ring.

Wonderfully sited for cruising, over winter and as a stopping place for those visiting these beautiful waters, New Mills Marina will be a must see location for all canal boats travelling this part of the country.

The Torrside team is a very democratic set-up between 3 long-practicing homebrewers, with a lot of support from long-suffering partners. We’d each been brewing for several years, and it was time to do something with all that obsession.

Beer is an amazingly varied drink, with flavours that are created by a huge number of factors – from the mix of malts and hops, and which yeasts we use for fermentation, to finer details of the brewing process such as timings, temperatures, and maturation. More Info >

Peak Forest Canal

For much of its length, the canal runs alongside the pretty River Goyt. Both the canal and the river are havens for plants and wildlife. The nature reserve of Goytside Meadows is home to a stunning variety of wild flowers.

The Peak Forest Canal boasts two Scheduled Ancient Monuments in its 15-mile length – the grand, three-arch Marple Aqueduct and the historic Bugsworth Basin. Bugsworth Basin is the end of the canal, where it once connected with a horse-drawn tramway that carried gritstone, limestone and burnt lime to be loaded at Bugsworth for onward carriage to Manchester, the North West and Midlands.
