Old mill race and sluice, Ballyclare
The remains of an old mill race and sluice beside the Sixmilewater (right) J2890 : The Sixmilewater, Ballyclare (3). To the best of my knowledge they powered the paper mill (1875-1950) which was served by a siding on the (3ft) narrow-gauge railway D4002 : Mosaic, Larne from Ballyboley Jct, between Ballymena and Larne. The line closed to passengers in 1930 but continued to operate goods trains to the paper mill until its closure. The river is not shown on the Google map see the satellite photograph.
The Sixmilewater, Co Antrim

The Sixmilewater is longer than the name suggests approximately 20 miles in total. It rises to the north of Carrickfergus and flows by way of Ballyclare, Dunadry and Antrim town into Lough Neagh.
