Lanark - famous for its market gardening, sits over 200 metres above the upper reaches of the River Clyde. A statue of William Wallace - who lived in Lanark in the 13th to 14th century, sits in a niche of the 18th century Parish Church. Going south from Lanark takes you very quickly to New Lanark and the Falls of Clyde.
New Lanark was built in the 18th century as a model industrial mill village by David Dale, Richard Arkwright and Dale's son, Robert to develop a textile trade using Arkwright's spinning frame and power provided by the Clyde river.
The Falls of Clyde: At one end of New Lanark, you can see the wonderful beginnings of the River Clyde as it drops millions of tonnes of water onto the dark sandstone base of the tree covered gorge.
