As there's already a thread on Skelmersdale and Hale which are other Counties, I thought i'd post some pics of Ormskirk that I took around Christmas.
Named after a viking settler, lots of ancient history here with its 1000 year old market and nearby Burscough Priory and Lathom House. The quaint villages of Haskayne and Parbold are only a short distance away with canalside pubs and Ormskirk itself is only 15 mins from switch island (3 hours if you're walking)
Here is the International food market that's on every now and again. The main market is on every thurs and sat.
looking South down Aughton Street from the Clock Tower - Liverpool bound.
