New Lanark is a former 18th century cotton spinning mill located on the banks of the Falls of Clyde where philanthropist and utopian idealist Robert Owen moulded a model industrial community in the early 19th century. The imposing cotton mill buildings, spacious and well designed worker�s housing and dignified educational institute and school still testify to Owen�s humanism. Today New Lanark is recognised as one of Scotlands�s six UNESCO World Heritage Site�s of �outstanding universal value� and welcomes over 300,000 visitors to the site each year.
