Scope and Content New Lanark Mills, South Lanarkshire New Lanark Mills were established by David Dale and Richard Arkwright, the first mill being opened in 1786. Four mills were built before Robert Owen took over the management of the mills in 1799. In 1881 they were adapted to make fishing nets and canvas, as well as continuing to spin cotton. This shows the house known as 'Dale's House', supposed to be where David Dale stayed on visits to the mills. To the left are the ends of Wee Row and Mantilla Row, and, to the right, the village church. This photograph was taken after the Gourock Ropework Co Ltd, owners of the mills, had closed them, and dismantling of machinery had already begun. The mills have had a chequered history since then, but have been largely restored, and achieved World Heritage Site status in 2001. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
