The TOTSO railway bridge at New Smithy.

New Smithy is a hamlet in Derbyshire, England, near the village and in the parish of Chinley. It sits on the A624 trunk road from Glossop to Chapel-en-le-Frith featuring a TOTSO where left carries one down to Chapel and right heads to Chinley. There is a railway bridge over the turning, used for both freight and passengers, on the Hope Valley Line to Sheffield and Buxton; very close down the line is Chinley railway station. Next to this the Crown & Mitre pub is the main landmark and there are a couple of residential housing streets and terraces, and one or two businesses. The hamlet has an industrial past, along with the neighbouring village of Hayfield.[1] New Smithy's Maynestone Mill was finally demolished in 1946, almost 500 years after it was opened in 1452.[1][2]

New Smithy is in a hilly area (being in the Peak District); geographical features include Bole Hill, Mount Famine, South Head, Eccles Pike, Mag Low, Chinley Churn, the River Sett and Combs Reservoir.[3]
