The cement slab in the brush on the right marks the
relocation of the small Ilchester Station. The station
survived until about 1960.
The former Thistle Mill is located just across the river (left) from
here. It was constructed in the 1820s, and through the years
manufactured both cotton and paper. Until recently the buildings
were still in use as a paper recycling plant, but in 2003 a fire
destroyed most of what was not made of stone. It is unlikely a
business will reopen at the location, thus bringing to end an
almost 200-year long Patapsco-related chain.
