Looking north-west at the junction of Mill Street with Moore Street, I had often wondered why not the road through the town wasn't named as Main Street.

Much of the town was built in the 18th Century by Acheson Moore, the local landlord. Because he backed the Jacobite cause, he planted his estate in the shape of a thistle and planned out the town on the edge of it. Unable to rename it "Mooretown", he had to settle for naming the main street "Moore Street", and the side streets Sydney, Lettice and Henritta (now Ravella Rd), after his three wives.
