Riverhead Paper Mill

Exploring our Neighbourhood

Dave, E and I were walking the dogs recently and took a different route, exploring a path we have never been down before.  We crossed under the bridge next to the river and came upon a historical site!

The Riverhead Paper Mill converted an existing flour mill at the end of the 19th century and began operations.  Unfortunately all that is left now awesome ruins and a large sign.  E had so much fun climbing, exploring and pretending, it was very cool finding a new little corner of our lovely neighbourhood.

I live in rural Auckland, New Zealand. Two boys, one big, one not so big and 2 boy dogs belong to me and I them. I love Coca Cola in all of its sugar-less forms and I love you internet. I take way too many pictures of my kids and collect them all here. This is what I am doing when I should be cleaning or cooking or doing other 'useful' things.
