Port Sunlight is a model village and suburb in the Metropolitan Borough of Wirral, Merseyside. It was built by Lever Brothers to accommodate workers in its soap factory (now part of Unilever); work commenced in 1888. The name is derived from Lever Brothers' most popular brand of cleaning agent, Sunlight. Port Sunlight contains 900 Grade II listed buildings, and was declared a Conservation Area in 1978. The village formed part of the civil parish of Lower Bebington from 1866, and of the subsequent urban district from 1894. In 1933 it became part of Bebington Urban District, then of the Municipal Borough of Bebington from 1937. The municipal borough was abolished in 1974, becoming Bebington unparished area.
