There are two waterfalls on the grounds of the old mill at Ancaster. The upper falls has been re-engineered but still this is an attractive site. It is surrounded by hard stone landscaping and forms the centerpiece of the mill's grounds, making it great place to have dinner or hold a banquet.

This is an attractive site. The lower falls is set right beside the old mill, feeling constrained between the woods and the big stone building. Neither of the falls are overly special, but this is nice place to wander around. Note that this is the same creek that feeds Sherman Falls, about 600 m downstream.

The grounds of the Ancaster Mill are privately owned. For years, the mill has tolerated visitors walking into the grounds for a photo or two. But this could change in a flash, so it's up to every visitor to be discreet and respectful of the property. Weddings are held outside in summer; please don't be that person that wanders through the bride's photo shoot just to see the falls!
