Photographer's Note

This is the Old Dye Works at New Lanark, now a historic conservation village which was developed in the early 19th. Century by Robert Owen, a great industrialist and social reformer, for the spinning and weaving of yarn. The dye works lie at the upstream end of the village, above the three great mills which were powered by the River Clyde which is seen to the right of the picture below the level where the great mill lade takes off. Upstream of here are the the Falls of Clyde, a wonderful area for walkers and bird watchers.

Taken on a rather dull autumn morning. I have cropped out what was a pale and featureless sky.
