Plan of Port Sunlight 1914

This is the hand drawn plan for Port Sunlight. It shows the houses, layout and main features of the village. Most buildings were constructed between 1892 and 1913 with some added in 1932. Port Sunlight was planned to have the essential amenities for the people who lived there. Can you find some of these amenities on the plan? What facilities or aspects of the design encouraged the residents to take part in healthy activities?
