Ness Botanical Gardens

Neston became an important town on the Wirral at the beginning of the 19th century.  It prosperity resulted from the decline of Chester as a port because of the silting of the River Dee.

The construction of Neston’s New Quay was the subject of considerable disagreement over costing.  Work was started in 1541 and had not been completed 30 years later.  Due to silting, New Quay was abandoned at the beginning of the 17th century in favour of the quay at Parkgate.  There are few remnants of the old quay where ships left for Dublin.

Between Neston and Burton lies Ness Botanical Gardens. The garden was given to Liverpool University by the family of Arthur Bulley, a successful cotton merchants, who collected rare plants from all over the world.
