In the past, New Mills Newtown had quite a substantial goods yard, including an elevated signal box of LNWR type 5/6 design, a large three-storey warehouse including basement, and a crane and wharf. These were all built by the LNWR. Recently, the last remaining evidence of this goods yard was demolished. These were the stables for what were meant to be the railway's horses, but ended up being used for many other horses in New Mills. There is also a three-span wrought-iron footbridge that connects Redmoor to its other half, the end of which has steps leading down to the children's park on Chapel Street. This is built on five brick columns: there are five columns for a three-span bridge because one end is held by the steps, the other supported by the Chalkers Snooker Club embankment. The others are in close alignment holding an otherwise flimsy thin iron bridge.
