Trains to Ormskirk

A popular town for those with a sweet tooth, Ormskirk is renowned for its gingerbread - in the mid-1800s the town's bakers would pay £20 per year to the East Lancashire Railway Company for the right to sell gingerbread on the platforms. Today the town boasts an excellent high street brimming with independent retailers and a range of restaurants, cafes and pubs, all within walking distance of the station. Landmarks include the 12th century St Peter and St Paul church and the Grade II listed Clock Tower. Ormskirk's small station is a key interchange between Liverpool and Preston. Built in 1849, the original redbrick building, with its large white canopy, is Grade II listed. Unusually, the single platform is divided in two by a buffer, effectively creating two terminuses on one line. Since 2009 it has been one of the most eco-friendly stations in the UK, with a rainwater harvesting system and energy-saving measures in place.
