Houston's Mill, Broughshane (1), taken 9 years ago
Houstonís Mill was a derelict 18th century flax scutching mill. Now extensively restored it is used as a community centre. The grounds have picnic tables, sites and services for motor homes and attractive flower beds. The ancestors of General Sam Houston (the man who brought Texas into the Union) came from the area. This National Cycle Network post is in the grounds.
National Cycle Network Mileposts
1000 Millennium cast iron mileposts were funded by the Royal Bank of Scotland to mark the creation of the National Cycle Network, and found along the cycles routes through the UK.

There are four different types of posts, "Fossil Tree" by John Mills, "The Cockerel" by Iain McColl, Rowe Type by Andrew Rowe, and "Tracks" by David Dudgeon. The four artists are from each country of the UK though all posts can be found in all four countries.
