Sorry your thread got hi-jacked, Al. (I've only skimmed through). Economic History classes at Strathclyde in the late sixties introduced me to Robert Owen and his ideas. Somehow, despite living within ten miles of New Lanark for the early part of my life, it was only last New Year that I first visited the site. I guess it looks much as it did, the cost of keeping it that way has been met by re-developing some of the buildings as private residences, there is a hotel and a Youth Hostel as well. There remain water-courses and turbine buildings from which the mills derived their power, parts of the mill buildings are occupied by a museum and visitor centre. Decent foot-paths allow you to get further up the gorge to the falls of Clyde. Some magnificent trees line the banks, could possibly be original planting from the time New Lanark was created. Well worth a visit if you get the chance.
Ross
