New Lanark is one of Scotland's six World Heritage Sites. The care of the site is currently under New Lanark Trust which is a Registered Scottish Charity (SC008552). New Lanark Trust was established in 1974 with the aim of restoring and regenerating the former cotton mill village of New Lanark as a living and working community which is a major source of employment and commercial activity in the area.
