A Unique Step Back in Time

New Lanark World Heritage Site

New Lanark is a former cotton mill village situated on the banks of the River Clyde. Today it is a living and working village in which visitors can explore the history of the mills and their people. From the story of New Lanark told by the spirit of Annie McLeod, to the story of cotton and from life as a millworker to the influence of Robert Owen, New Lanark’s most famous manager, over 200 years of history are brought to life.
