New Lanark World Heritage Site is a beautifully restored 18th century cotton mill village in Scotland. Situated close to the famous Falls of Clyde the village is surrounded by stunning natural scenery. The village of New Lanark was first founded in 1785 and earned renown as a model industrial community based on the enlightened principals of Robert Owen. He provided decent homes, fair wages, free health care, a new education system for villagers and the first workplace nursery school in the world!

Today, after many years of extensive restoration, conservation and development, the village is established as a living community and a complete visitor attraction. Now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, New Lanark welcomes many visitors each year from all over the world.

There’s always a lot going on at New Lanark and on this Blog we’ll keep you posted with everything that’s New Lanark!
