World Heritage Day 2019
This #WorldHeritageDay, we’re celebrating our continuing involvement in the restoration and development of the #UNESCO New Lanark World Heritage Site.
Our work here extends over 40 years with the latest phase commencing in 2016 with the restoration of the A-Listed Double Row terrace – the last empty block on the site having previously provided housing for millworkers in the village the properties will be brought back into residential use. The interior of one tenement, ‘The Museum Stair’ has also been conserved and stabilised – too delicate to allow public access; the interior has been digitally recorded for exhibition and conservation use.
The current phase, known as The Townscape Heritage Project is due for completion in 2020 and also includes work to Mantilla Row, Caithness Row and the Counting House.
