This model village on the Wirral penninsula is a very photogenic subject.

Port Sunlight on the Wirral was built to accommodate the workers of the Lever Brothers soap factory, the village was named after a popular cleaning product that the company produced.

If you’re looking to capture some local social history, then the cottages and houses of Port Sunlight give an insight of how the working people lived here, a world away from the typically harsh living conditions of other parts of the Industrial North.

The jewel in the crown of the village is undoubtedly the Lady Lever Art Gallery, once you have taken shots of the aesthetically pleasing building and its surroundings, then do have a venture inside. The Gallery is renowned for hosting unique exhibitions and as well housing an interesting permanent art collection.
