Scotland, New Lanark, the Lake District & onto Leicester

Description- In this video we travel from Balloch in Scotland around Glasgow to New Lanark which is a is a small 18th- century village set in a sublime Scottish landscape where the philanthropist and Utopian idealist Robert Owen moulded a model industrial community in the early 19th century. The imposing cotton mill buildings, the spacious and well-designed workers’ housing, and the dignified educational institute and school still testify to Owen’s humanism. The village was founded in 1785, and the cotton mills, powered by water-wheels, were operational from 1786 to 1968. At the turn of the 19th century the mill buildings formed one of the largest industrial groups in the world.
After spending 4 hours exploring New Lanark we then drove down and into the Lake District.
We were quite surprised at our accommodation in Ireby which was a beautiful Georgian Mansion we had booked with Airbnb, while there one evening I was able to get some good video & photos of a red Squirrel. With only one full day and a half we explored as much as we could of the magnificent Lake District.
On our drive from Ireby to Leicester we took a detour to visit the lovely village of Cartmel. It was then back to Dee’s brothers home at Markfield in Leicester for a great family reunion.
