The township

The Township of Cavan Monaghan is just 20 kilometres south of Peterborough in Central Ontario. It consists of a number of rural hamlets including Cavan, Tapley, Millbrook, Springville Cedar Valley, Fraserville, Ida, Mount Pleasant and South Monaghan. While the township has ample prime agricultural land, the area in recent years has been an attraction for film companies. Downtown Millbrook has been the scene for a number of movies and TV shows. The township is also growing with a number of new subdivisions and further expected growth once the Highway 407 extension is completed. Cavan Monaghan is one of the townships that make up Peterborough County and is policed by the Peterborough Police Service.
