NEW MILLS is an ecclesiastical parish, formed in 1844, and township, comprising the hamlets of Beard, Ollersett, Thornsett, and Whittle. New Mills is a large village, situated on the river Goyt, 7 miles south-west from Glossop, 8 south-east from Stockport, 170 from London by road and 176½ by railway, in the Northern division of the county, hundred of High Peak, Hayfield union. The Midland railway have a station here, and the London and North Western and Manchester, Sheffield and Lincolnshire railways have access to this place. The original name of New Mills was Bowden Middle Cale; it formerly comprised seven hamlets; it has been divided, three of the hamlets being attached to Hayfield, and the remaining four now form the township. A mill was built upon the Kinder, in the hamlet of Ollersett, and the name New Mills was in consequence conferred on the four hamlets. The church of St. George is situated in Beard, and is a handsome structure in the Pointed style, and has chancel, nave and aisles, and spire, and contains 500 free sittings. The register dates from the year 1831. The living is a vicarage, yearly value £300, in the gift of the vicar of Glossop, and held by the Rev. Frederick William Newman, M.A., of St. Peter's College, Cambridge. The vicarage was built by subscriptions and grants. There is a National mixed school. Here is a handsome Roman Catholic chapel, with spire; the style is Early English; the Rev. Albert Opbroeck is the priest. The Wesleyan Methodists, the Association Methodists, the Independents, and the Primitive Methodists have chapels. The cattle fairs are held on May 11th and October 7th. Here are iron and brass foundries, calico printing and bleach works, cotton spinning and cotton band manufactories, and collieries. The Public Hall was erected by public subscription in 1871, at a cost of over £2,000, and opened in the same year by the Duke of Devonshire: a tower was added in 1875, and a large clock, which chimes the hours and quarters, has been presented to the inhabitants by Mrs. Ingham, of Watford Villa: in the large upper room the county magistrates meet and hold petty sessions once a month, it is used also for public entertainments: the lower rooms are divided into class rooms, news and reading rooms, and used by the Mechanics' Institute, of which John Mackie, esq., J.P., is president, and Messrs. John Pollett and Thomas Pickup are secretaries: the Savings Bank occupies a room here, which is open on Saturdays from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. A Local Board is about to be formed for the New Mills district, which comprises the adjoining village of Newtown, in the parish of Disley; The late James Ingham, esq, of Watford Villa, left £500 in 1868, the interest of which is applied to educating and clothing poor children in the township. Bowden's charity of 30s. yearly is for bread. The principal landowners are Lord Egerton, F. I. Turner, esq., William H. Turner, esq., and Mrs. Cresswell. The soil is clay; subsoil, clay. The acreage is 5,044; rateable value, £15,055; the population in 1871 was 5,028.
