The settlement was founded in 1873, and its name rapidly progressed from Moatown to Milton, before being renamed to Inglewood in 1875 to avoid confusion with Milton in the South Island.A number of buildings are listed by Heritage New Zealand.

Until comparatively recently, the dual chimneys of the factory could be seen from miles away.Find out how to plan New Zealand trip without stress by asking Inspirock to help create an itinerary.
