Robert Owen's contribution

New Lanark village first rose to fame when Robert Owen was mill manager from 1800-1825. Owen transformed life in New Lanark with utopian ideas and opportunities which were at least a hundred years ahead of their time. 

Child labour and corporal punishment were abolished, and villagers were provided with decent homes, schools and evening classes, free health care, and affordable food.

New Lanark lets you imagine how people lived and worked in Owen's time. Guided tours around the 18th century New Lanark mill village are available which are perfect for group visits.

New Lanark is still a living community, and the village is in the care of an independent charity. Profits from the hotel and visitor attraction help the New Lanark Trust continue to restore and maintain the historic village

Why not stop off along the picturesque Clyde Valley Tourist Route or the Falls of Clyde, while you are in the Lanarkshire area.
