    New Lanark 2021: A Living Legacy

    From Robert Owen to World Heritage and Beyond

    12th - 14th October 2021

  • Conference 2021
New Lanark Trust will be hosting a special anniversary conference marking three important milestones in the World Heritage Site’s history:

• The 250th anniversary of the birth of Robert Owen, the site’s most famous advocate;
• The 20th anniversary of UNESCO World Heritage Site inscription,
• The completion of the restoration of the former millworkers’ housing in the village.

Join us virtually or in-person from 12th-14th October 2021 to celebrate New Lanark's remarkable journey, from Robert Owen to World Heritage and beyond: legacies of social reform and heritage-led regeneration.

  • Background

    New Lanark was inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in December 2001 as a result of its Outstanding Universal Value: an exceptional example of a purpose-built 18th century mill village which became famous due to the enlightened management and social reforms of Robert Owen. Following the closure of the Mills in 1968, the site has undergone nearly five decades of ongoing restoration and conservation. The most recent restoration phase of this work- the Townscape Heritage and Conservation Area Regeneration Scheme programme- is due to end in 2021, bringing the physical restoration of the site full circle.
