The river Clyde, at New Lanark World Heritage Site, a beautifully restored 18th century cotton mill village in Southern Scotland.
The village first rose to fame when Robert Owen was mill manager from 1800-1825. Owen transformed life in New Lanark with 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.
