Description

2:00pm-3:00pm, Wednesday, 22 May 2019:

ADH members are invited to purchase a £12.50 ticket (plus a small handling fee) to attend a special Wool & Textiles Tour at New Lanark World Heritage Site, South Lanarkshire, Scotland, ML11 9DB. The website describes New Lanark World Heritage Site as a unique eighteenth-century mill village sitting alongside the picturesque River Clyde less than one hour from Glasgow and Edinburgh. Read about New Lanark here: http://www.newlanark.org.

Visitors can see recreated millworkers’ houses, historic working machinery, and the nearby "Falls of Clyde" waterfalls. There’s a Mill Shop selling locally made textiles, welcoming Mill Café, and the 4-star New Lanark Mill Hotel. There’s an opportunity to see historic working textile machinery.

Our ADH members' Wool & Textiles Tour will begin at 2:00pm and end at 3:00pm. Your £12.50 ticket entitles you to enter New Lanark World Heritage Site any time during the morning or afternoon, so you can take your time walking around the site. And, you can continue visiting the site after our tour finishes at 3:00pm.

ADH Chairman, Jennifer Daley, will be attending this Wool & Textiles Tour, so if you have any questions, please contact her at chairman@dresshistorians.org. After the Wool & Textiles Tour, Jennifer will be going to Edinburgh (via public transportation) as accompanying events for The New Research in Dress History Conference will begin on Thursday morning, 23 May 2019 in Edinburgh.
