A Townscape Heritage / Conservation Area Regeneration Scheme is taking place at New Lanark over the next four years. Phase 1 of this large-scale regeneration project begins with the restoration work of Double Row, a Category A listed former millworkers' tenement block, built in the 1790s. Join in with our FREE public events as part of this exciting project and the Year of Innovation, Architecture and Design & the Festival of Architecture 2016.

Total costs for this large scale regeneration project are over £4m. The two main funders are the Heritage Lottery Fund through its Townscape Heritage (TH) programme and Historic Environment Scotland through its Conservation Area Regeneration Scheme (CARS). Additional funding has been secured from the Renewable Energy Fund (South Lanarkshire Council), The Wolfson Foundation and New Lanark Trust.
