1820 settlers

Two new guided sessions have been introduced at the New Lanark World Heritage Site in South Lanarkshire. With "Owen's Schoolchildren", pupils spend an hour in the 1820s classroom with a costumed teacher, who will give lessons in handwriting, arithmetic, drill, and nature studies. Younger groups are introduced to light, sound and colour in interactive gallery sessions. Features include ceiling-to-floor musical strings, a silver padded floor where pools of reflected colour can be created, and a ripple wall which moves to the gentle sounds of running water.
