About this event

Lever Bros founder William Hesketh Lever, the 1st Viscount Leverhulme, was not only a pioneering industrialist but also a shrewd philanthropist who realised that the provision of a model village to house his workers not only "tied" them to his factory but engendered a sense of belonging to the Levers family. The quality of the facilities he provided was far beyond the standard prevailing in contemporary communities of the time. The story covers the intrinsic link between work and home life for his army of employees.
