Millstones in Goldenhill Park
Millstones in Goldenhill Park
The two millstones that can be seen in the foreground are from Duntocher Corn Mill, which ceased operating in 1820.

The leaflet "Duntocher, Hardgate and Faifley Heritage Trail" points out that "the first reference to a corn mill in Duntocher is in the Paisley Abbey rental book of 1460 which notes that the Duntocher Burn was used by a mill owned by Thome de Strabrock".

The millstones are located near the north-western entrance of Goldenhill Park (that entrance can be seen in the background). Visible through the gate is a bridge which stands on the site of a Roman original: NS4972 : Inscription on Roman Bridge. The cross on the left is part of a war memorial: LinkExternal link
