Abstract

The historic landscape of the Falls of Clyde, surrounding estates and the factory commmunity of New Lanark are among the earliest to integrate pleasure gardens with the natural environment. Visitors were attracted in large numbers, combining picturesque tourism with interest in the reformist agenda implemented at New Lanark. The significance of the landscape is now recognised by inclusion in the buffer zone protecting the World Heritage site of New Lanark.
