Inglis Falls near Owen Sound,

Inglis Falls. Since 1845, Peter Inglis and his family ran mills here, using the power of the water, which produced flour, bran, wool and lumber for the next 87 years.

The Sydenham River cascades 18 meters over the edge of the Niagara Escarpment. There are some remains of a grist, saw and woollen mill complex.

Inglis Falls Filtration Plant have unique underground caverns, where the water was filtered and gravity fed into the valley for the residents homes. (Decommissioned, now open only seldom for public).

It is named after Mr. Inglis whose name was probably mispronounced, when he arrived from England. ;-)

I arrived here late afternoon and the sun was shining on the top of the fall, while the bottom was in deep shade. It was difficult to make a good exposure, so I resorted to this B&W image and cropped the overexposed top part of the falls.
