Ormskirk Market Day

On Saturday 24 November and Sunday 25 November 2018, ODFHS will attend the Images Of Burscough and Surrounding Areas Exhibition at the Stanley Club, Liverpool Road, Burscough.

The free exhibition will be open to the public between 10am and 5pm, offering a chance to see more than 650 historic images of Burscough, Ormskirk, Scarisbrick, Parbold and other local villages, including a diverse selection of images of people who lived and worked in West Lancashire during the past. A range of local information sheets will be available for those who wish to take them.


We are advised that the following groups and individuals will also attend the event:

Alan James Barrow with his Roll of Honour for the Airmen of West Lancashire

Richard Houghton of Lathom and Burscough Military Heritage Society, with his display of military information

Paul Smith with his portable Ormskirk Museum collection of old artefacts and photographs


If you can come along on either day, please come over to see us; we'll have our collection of articles, magazines, local records and gravestone transcriptions on CD and DVD, and postcards for sale, and will be happy to help with any family history questions that you might have.
