Inglewood is a town in the Taranaki Region of New Zealand's North Island. The population was 3,090 in the 2006 Census, an increase of 144 from 2001. In 2013 it had risen to 3,243.DescriptionInglewood is located southeast of New Plymouth on State Highway 3, close to Mount Taranaki/Egmont. The town lies above sea level. It is a small town servicing a mainly dairy farming region. Although close to New Plymouth, the town has the usual stores and services for town and country.Inglewood was named by Philip Colin Threkeld for Inglewood Forest in Cumberland, United Kingdom. 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 the New Zealand Historic Places Trust. Of those, the Railway Station and Yard is the only one listed as Category I. The Shoe Store Building on the corner of Rata and Richmond Streets is one of eight listed as Category II.Inglewood was home to the Moa-Nui Co-operative Dairies factory, before it merged with Kiwi Co-operative Dairies (later Fonterra) based at Hawera in 1991. Until comparatively recently, the dual chimneys of the factory could be seen from miles away.
