Limehouse Conservation Area
5th line at 22nd sideroad in Limehouse
Visitors to Limehouse Conservation Area can experience a diverse mix of natural beauty and cultural heritage. Located on the Niagara Escarpment, Limehouse offers a great walk through time. The trail cuts through the Escarpment face in an area known as the “Hole in the Wall.” Ladders help hikers scale Escarpment rock, through fissures and crevices providing a glimpse into Ontario’s geological past. The trail also passes the remainsof lime kilns, an early industry in Halton County.The lime produced from these kilns was used mainly as a binder in mortars for building purposes. The lime industry was a reason for growth from early settlement to the industrial period. In combination with the natural heritage of the Niagara Escarpment, Limehouse provides hikers with a great learning experience.
