Port Sunlight at RHS Tatton Flower Show

Port Sunlight Village Trust is delighted to be exhibiting at the 20th RHS Tatton Flower Show.

Our garden, named ‘130 years of Port Sunlight, The Garden Village’ celebrates the 130th anniversary of Port Sunlight and the remarkable vision of its founder, William Lever.

We are delighted to have been awarded a Silver Medal by the Royal Horticultural Society in our first ever Back to Back garden.

The informal and formal sections of the garden represent the importance Lever placed on health and wellbeing. He promoted exercise, healthy eating and fresh air by providing recreation facilities, allotments and open spaces for his workers.

The water feature reminds us of the role water played in shaping the layout of the village and in providing essential transport links which enabled Lever Brothers to make and supply products worldwide.

Original village cobblestones create a very real link to the past and a nod to the Arts and Crafts Movement – one of several artistic movements present in Port Sunlight which make the village so unique.

Come and see the garden at stand no. 323 between the 18th – 22nd July 2018!

We would like to thank our RHS Tatton garden sponsors and donors for their invaluable support.

Port Sunlight singled out by Historic England for its impact on the country and the wider world

Port Sunlight village has secured a place on Historic England’s prestigious campaign Irreplaceable – a History of England in 100 Places.

The campaign aims to create, with the public’s help, a list of 100 places, buildings and historical sites that tell the remarkable story of England and its impact on the world.

The campaign is divided into ten different categories including Homes and Gardens, Science and Discovery and Faith and Belief, which are all judged by an expert, from Mary Beard to Professor Robert Winston.

Port Sunlight was nominated by the public in Historic England’s Homes and Gardens category.

The Wirral village was included in the shortlist provided to expert judge, architect, TV presenter, lecturer and writer George Clark who then selected it to be one of the final ten places in his category.

All ten places picked by George will be explored in new episodes of Historic England’s recently launched podcast series.

Historic England says the sites chosen are ‘hotbeds of invention and creativity.’ With a spread across the country, they have helped shape both our nation and the world beyond.

Paul Harris, Chief Executive of Port Sunlight Village Trust, said: “To be included in Historic England’s History of England in 100 Places is a tremendous honour as it recognises the important role Port Sunlight has played in the social, culture and architectural shaping of our nation and the wider world.

“It is also testament to the people past and present who have worked hard to maintain the delicate balance between preserving the rich heritage of the village and making it a great place to visit, while ensuring it continues to be a vibrant place in which to live.”

Duncan Wilson, Chief Executive of Historic England, said: “The history of our homes […]
