The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 78


page 39


Inglewood is a thriving town, on the main line of rail-way, seventeen miles from New Plymouth, with water supply, drainage, and electric light, situated in the midst of good dairying country. Mount Egmont may easily be reached from here by a drive of about ten miles to the Forest Reserve. Excellent hotel accommodation will he found here, and there is good trout fishing in the neighbourhood. The industries include a sawmill and sash and door factory, a bacon factory and several dairy factories within a short radius, while two companies have been formed to bore for petroleum in the neighbourhood. Inglewood's elevation (657 feet) above sea level gives it a bracing air. An interesting, and in places beautiful drive may be taken along the Junction Road, East-wards through Tarata to Purangi, where the road crosses the Waitara River at the site of an old Maori settlement.
