On 2 November after a frosty start to the day, the stonework of the houses at New Lanark’s Long Row was glowing in the early afternoon sunshine. Above the Row, the trees are holding on to their leaves in all their glorious autumn colours while crows wheel in the clear air overhead. On the right of the photo is one of the lime trees originally planted by Robert Owen about 1800 when he laid out the paths above the village so that his millworkers could take exercise and enjoy some fresh air after a hard day in the cotton mills. If you come and visit, you can still enjoy that today!
