New La­nark light show spec­tac­u­lar

Sunday Herald - - NEWS IN BRIEF -

A SPEC­TAC­U­LAR light show at New La­nark World Her­itage Site last night show­cased the life of the his­toric mills and the work­ers who toiled there. Shin­ing Lives saw large im­ages pro­jected on to the 230-year-old build­ings as part of Scot­land’s Year of His­tory, Her­itage and Ar­chae­ol­ogy.

The 18th-cen­tury cot­ton mills on the banks of the Falls of Clyde were des­ig­nated a Unesco World Her­itage Site in 2001. An­nique Arm­strong, VisitS­cot­land re­gional di­rec­tor said: “From an­cient mon­u­ments and listed build­ings to our myths, sto­ries and legends, the 2017 Year of His­tory, Her­itage and Ar­chae­ol­ogy is cel­e­brat­ing Scot­land’s peo­ple, dis­tinct cul­ture and tra­di­tions, and his­toric land­scapes. The his­toric en­vi­ron­ment forges con­nec­tions be­tween peo­ple and places, so it’s fit­ting that dur­ing Scot­land’s cur­rent cel­e­bra­tory themed year we shone a spot­light on New La­nark’s out­stand­ing uni­ver­sal value.”
