    They are wanting the Burscough rail curve reinstated and put on the Merseyrail metro system. This then will take trains from Ormskirk to Burscough and then to Southport forming a loop.

    If this happens will Burscough remain as it is now? Will the shops close down as people go to Liverpool and Southport for their shopping?

    Deprived of its unique dockland waters Liverpool
    becomes a Venice without canals, just another city, no
    longer of special interest to anyone, least of all the
    tourist. Would we visit a modernised Venice of filled in
    canals to view its modern museum describing
    how it once was?

    I'm surprised you haven't got one of Burscough Priory. It's a little known bit of local history. The ruins (two columns of stone) are in the private property of a house, when I last visited an sweet old lady was living there, she kept geese in a paddock around the ruins and let my brother and I go in and have a look in return for sweeping up the crab apples on her driveway.

    Really nice.

    I've heard of it but never been, supposedly very, very old. Ormskirk market is over 1000 years old, Orme being a viking and kirk being his church. I work in skem and pick my eldest up from Burscough so this is my route.

    Nice pictures Ged!

    As you drive over the first bridge in Burscough,theres a nice pub along the canal on the left hand side of the A59, its called the Slipway.

    Lovely in the summer, a walk along the canal for about 15 minutes, the pub is on the next bridge along.
