The county of Lanarkshire is split into North and South and surrounded by many counties - Stirling, Falkirk, West Lothian, Scottish Borders, Dumfries and Galloway, East Ayrshire, East Renfrewshire and Glasgow. The county is probably most famous for The New Lanark World Heritage Site which was built in 1785 by David Dale, a Scottish industrialist, to take advantage of the water power of the Falls of Clyde, to spin cotton much of which is commemorated at Summerlee Heritage Park.
