New Lanark light show spectacular
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.”
