CT: Litchfield County- New Preston- Aspetuck Falls (Winter)

It’s another “park-shoot & run” back of a wintry waterfall! But this one also has remains of an old stone mill.

Nestled behind the stores of the small quaint town of New Preston is where you can park and see the 20 foot waterfall which once powered over 20 mills along the Aspetuck river. I have seen these falls referred to as Aspetuck Falls or New Preston Falls.

I noticed the water shooting out what looked to be a clear ice tube. I couldn’t tell if this was an actual tube or if it was the water that iced up forming what appeared to be a tube created by the cold?

Plastic or ice tube in the center?

Also you can see the remains of the old mill from back in the 1800s.

After the falls and the chill of winter stop by the colorful Sweeet (yes three “e”s) shop along E Shore road as well as several lovely design and antique shops.
