A picturesque town with more than 900 Grade II listed houses and public buildings, Port Sunlight was founded in 1888 by the industrialist William Lever as a self-contained community for his soap factory workers.
The village today is an immaculately preserved example of early town planning. A prototypical garden city, Port Sunlight’s manicured gardens and parklands offer abundant green space for the village’s residents and visitors, while cultural institutions like the Lady Lever Art Gallery and The Gladstone Theatre provide access to the arts.
With just 2,000 residents, Port Sunlight is home to a small but thriving community
With our group of children, we had painted a large rainbow on a window at the front of the house. But they suggested that we should put something on the wall at the back of the house too, to brighten the back entrance and to thank the refuse collectors and other key workers. They created a beautiful rainbow using chalk and were really pleased with their joint effort. Many people who were passing said they loved it.
