NPC Outing - Milling Around Millbrook - February 16th

This Sunday, February 16th, our outing will start at 10 am at the Toronto Rd carpark in Port Hope.  We will head north along County Rd 10 towards Millbrook.  This scenic road through the Northumberland Hills passes by a mill and river in Canton, Perrytown Church and cemetery, Maple Crescent horse farm, Twin Pines Alpaca Farm and Mill (farm store is open on Sundays), a sugar shack, and a closed and seemingly forgotten store and gas station in Garden Hill.  The short drive to Millbrook offers many opportunities for landscape photography along County Rd 10 and on some of the smaller side roads.

Millbrook is a small village whose main street is frequently used in TV and movie shoots due to its historic architecture.  With the coming of the 407 and a large new subdivision this village may be on the verge of change.  There is also a stream, mill, and mill pond in the village along with 3 churches and some historic homes.  Lunch will be in Millbrook at 12:00 at Moody’s.  Contact Sandra at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Following lunch photographers have several options.  You could continue north through the hills.  Continuing north takes you to Emily Provincial Park.  Turning east at Mt Pleasant takes you past the Cavan swamp area. 

Going west from Garden Hill on County Rd 9 takes you on a hilly route near the Brimacombe ski area.  Going east you can head to Bewdley and Rice Lake where there will be ice huts and fishermen.    Unfortunately, the motorcycle races usually held on Sundays in Bewdley will not be on.  The drive along County Rd 9 east of Bewdley is also scenic.

If any photographers are willing to submit their photos to be used by Millbrooke BIA,  Sandra can give you the contact information.

Any images taken of the motorcycle races in Bewdley on other Sundays can be submitted to the February outings.
