Description

A collection of old mills and other buildings in the general area of christi lake and the town of Dundas in the City of hamilton, specifically along Crooks Hollow road. Remains of a couple of mills (Darnley's Paper Mill) as well as remains of old dams and housing foundations at the ghost town of Crook's Hollow.

Excellent place to spend an afternoon walking around. Numerous ghost stories around the area of the mill and it has been reported that a man has been seen wandering the path to the mill from the new dam in search of his wife.

Some buildings are located on private property so beware.

History- Originally Darnley Mill was a Grist Mill built in 1811..In 1860 it was converted into a paper mill.. There is much info online.

None of the address are revealed in any of my blogs so I don't see how this is a problem.

If what riddimryder said is true, then that kind of publishing is directly putting any future visitors at greater risk. Just my 2 cents.

@Kenndruuh 6 of the 9 locations posted on your blog are marked as Full Member locations here. Why are you name/location dropping so openly? Kinda defeats the purpose of full member locations!

The waterfall was beautiful! Definitely worth the trip.

I see fences and signs in the photos. Is there regular security patrol. Anything out of the usual urbex to be aware of once over the fence?
