Our Places

From the way we care for our land through to the architectural beauty of villages like Thornton Hough and Brimstage, Leverhulme believes passionately in achieving excellence and quality in all it does.

Land Management

Leverhulme is custodian to thousands of acres of land across Wirral and elsewhere.

For over 130 years, the land owned by the estate has been used for numerous purposes including agricultural use, educational, commercial, sporting, retail and leisure.

Leverhulme has a number of established farms across the country. Much of our land in Wirral is farmed by second-generation farming families, many of whom have diversified over the years.

Most of the farms include a farmhouse, outbuildings, land and cottages, usually occupied by farm staff.

The Estate includes dairy, beef and arable farmers as well as grazing land.

There is even a maize maze at Brimstage Hall Farm, where each year over three miles of pathways are incorporated into the maize crop to create a popular visitor attraction during the summer months.
