Friday photo: roof relaxation

This is the roof garden at New Lanark World Heritage Site. Roof gardens are not a common sight in Scotland and this one is apparently the largest in the country. It houses a water feature, several sculptures and a variety of plants. New Lanark village contains extensive old mill buildings that have been turned into a large exhibition area. It’s a fascinating place to visit but there’s a lot to take in. After being bombarded with information downstairs, the roof garden supplies a wonderful sense of peace and calm.

    1. I agree with you Sonja, we should make more of these high up spaces. I suppose traditionally we don’t tend to have flat roofs, which might be why there are so few roof gardens, but many modern buildings could incorporate something like this.
