New Lanark
New Lanark
A social milestone founded in 1784 by the Glasgow banker and entrepreneur, David Dale, and Richard Arkwright, pioneer of industrial cotton-spinning, consisting of a textile mill driven by water and a complete settlement with workers' dwellings, school and other services. It was socially far ahead of its time and comparable to the Quarry Bank Mill(NT) in Styal, Cheshire founded by Samuel Greg also in 1784. Dale continued as sole proprietor after 1786. His work was continued and the village developed by his son-in-law, Robert Owen, who arrived in the village in 1800.
