Hanbye Abbey

The Hanbye Abbey was a medieval monastery built in the 12th and 13th centuries which housed Benedictine Monks. It was owned by the nation after the Revolution and was sold in 1790. Much of the buildings were dismantled and for a time the outer buildings were used as farm buildings. There has been some restoration but the church is still a ruin.

Elora Gorge: Ontario Waterfalls

Elora Gorge can be accessed from the town of Elora. Look for a parking lot by the main street bridge beside an abandoned furniture factory and you will be beside the best part of it. Looking across the falls, you will see the Elora Mill. The whole area is worth exploring, there is a dam and a mill race on the other side of the bridge. You can access trails from behind the abandoned factory or make your way to a park on the other side which will get you to the river level.

The interesting rock formation at the crest of the falls is known as the Tooth of Time.

Downstream can be found the Little Elora Falls.
