The Sett passes under the A624 Hayfield "bypass". The tower of St. Matthew's church can be seen through the trees in the background, and in the foreground are the scanty remains of Walk Mill.

The River Sett is a river that flows through the High Peak borough of Derbyshire, in north western England. It rises near Edale Cross on Kinder Scout and flows through the villages of Hayfield and Birch Vale to join the River Goyt at New Mills.[1] The River Goyt is one of the principal tributaries of the River Mersey.

The 2.5-mile Sett Valley Trail follows the trackbed of the former railway line between Hayfield and New Mills.[2]
