The local area guide to living in Ormskirk

Ormskirk is one of West Lancashire’s popular market towns, with a biweekly market that has been running since 1286. While it boasts a comprehensive range of shops and amenities, it’s also close to major cities and towns including, Liverpool, Preston, and the seaside town of Seaport. Within the town itself, you’ll find a variety of retail stores and a choice of parks - including the child-friendly Coronation Park - as well as all essential amenities like banks, cafés, and schools.

The town is known for its gingerbread, thanks to one of the popular 19th century traditions where the local women would bake gingerbread and take it to the staging inns to sell to their customers. Other traditions here include the market, which takes place in the heart of the town centre, and the annual Ormskirk MotorFest; a free motoring festival held annually on the bank holiday weekend.

Information about the local residents

Ormskirk’s population was last recorded at 24,196 in the 2011 census. Unlike the rest of West Lancashire, which has a generally ageing population, Ormskirk boasts a younger population with a higher level of 18-24 year olds than the surrounding towns. Of those working, the majority are in full-time work (approximately 68%) and the rest in part-time occupations.

The largest proportion of residents here work in supervisory or clerical roles, junior management roles, administration, or professional occupations. This reflects the types of businesses in the town itself, which include professional and financial services together with solicitors, estate agents, architects and accountants. While the area was once known for its manufacturing background, much of this industry has now disappeared and moved elsewhere.
