Change in a Historic Landscape: The Lost Buildings of Port Sunlight

24 October @ 1.00pm - 2.00pm

| £3.00

Lecture Theatre
Pay at the door.
Founded in the 19th century by William Hesketh Lever to house ‘Sunlight Soap’ factory workers, Port Sunlight is a thriving tourist destination containing 900 listed buildings. The village’s identity focuses on its supposedly unchanging nature, despite considerable development throughout its relatively short history. Dr Rebecca Andrew’s talk concentrates on demolished, replaced or re-purposed ‘lost’ buildings over the past 125 years. Challenging common representations of Port Sunlight, it questions the significance for tourists and residents alike.
