Roof Garden Diary – November 2015

Roof Garden Diary – November 2015

A cool  wet  summer  followed  by  a warm,  settled  spell in September and October  resulted in a beautiful display of autumn colour in and around New Lanark Roof Garden.   The woodlands on the hillside overlooking   the  village  were  originally planted in the early 19th century by New Lanark’s pioneering mill manager, Robert Owen, so that his millworkers could enjoy walks in the fresh air in an attractive natural environment.   New Lanark Roof Garden offers a great view of the trees, and this autumn they provided a splendid backdrop in russet and gold!
