The River Sett is a river which 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. The River Goyt is one of the principal tributaries of the River Mersey.

The Sett Valley Trail follows the trackbed of the former railway line between New Mills and Hayfield and is about three miles long.
