Founded in 1786, New Lanark was one of England's longest-running and most successful attempts at creating an industrial Socialist Utopian society. Only about a mile and half from Lanark, Scotland, New Lanark has since been added to the UNESCO's World Heritage sites. In this Audio Journey, Patricia L. Lawrence takes us on a tour along with Richard Evans, one of the development officers of the village and historic cotton milling facilities. Both Lawrence and Evans develop a friendly rapport that makes this audiobook a pleasure to hear.
Today, New Lanark is a model of cultural heritage, preservation and restoration thanks to the New Lanark Conservation Trust. We are exploring the Village with Richard Evans, development officer for the trust.
