Clyde and Avon Landscape Partnership

New Lanark

You can almost feel the river breeze on your face

Visitor comment

The Clyde and Avon Valleys provide arguably the finest examples of fluvioglacial erosion to be found anywhere in Scotland. This is a long and dramatic story, culminating in how the area’s geology has come to shape the lives, culture and livelihoods of the region’s communities, over more recent centuries.

Abound, with our partner CMC Associates, conducted community workshops and consulted with experts to shape the exhibition content. Through the use of traditional interpretation panels, hands-on elements and digital media we have created a multi-sensory environment to encourage engagement and active learning.

The exhibition is hosted by the New Lanark Mills, World Heritage Site but has been designed with modularity in mind, to allow for the exhibition to be relocated at a future date.

Post-project evaluation of the exhibition has revealed that the exhibition has been very well received by the client, funders and the public.
