New Mills nr the Peak District

On Saturday, Luke and I took my mum out for a small adventure as it was a beautiful sunny day. We ended up doing a short walk along the river Goyt.

We followed the path which took us along a high walkway above the river...

...this was looking back at the walkway, it was quite scary looking down whilst walking on the walkway!

Next we came across some ruins of a mill and a large viaduct...

...but looking onwards further there was a more interesting double via/aquaduct.

Looking back it appeared as if the large viaduct was built on a smaller arched bridge below.

Walking further, there were some beautiful reflections of the trees in the river...

...and an old wooden gate...

...and llamas awaiting for our arrival. They were not the most well presented animals as they were continually scratching their bottoms with their legs, but I got a quick snapshot when they were looking more civalised!
