  As described in "Liverpool Artist - J. Hamilton Hay"

In 1843 New Brighton is described as follows "a watering place, which at no very distant period, promises to become one of the most fashionable and delightful places of resort in this part of the kingdom. It was projected by James Atherton, Esq., of Liverpool, who purchased 170 acres of land, about seven years ago, and immediately commenced erecting marine villas. The situation has considerable advantages, it rises in a succession of ridges of a convex semicircular form, from the margin of the sea, and is capable of being arranged in terraces, so that none will intercept each other's view. The shore is admirably adapted for bathing, and there is an abundant supply of fresh water, which is received in a reservoir, capable of containing 1,600 gallons. Spacious streets, nearly a mile in length, are laid out, and numerous villas, and a commodious hotel, have been already erected ; showing the spirited manner in which the project of the proprietor is being carried out, and the gigantic nature of his plans."
