Ormskirk St Peter and Paul is an Ancient Parish and a market town in the county of Lancashire. Scarisbrick is a chapelry of Ormskirk.Other places in the parish include: Newburgh, Bickerstaffe, Burscough, Lathom, and Skelmersdale.

The Church of St Peter and St Paul is in the market town of Ormskirk, Lancashire, England. Dating from no later than the 12th century, it is one of only three churches in England to have both a western tower and a central spire, and the only one to have them both at the same end of the church. It is an active Anglican parish church in the Diocese of Liverpool. It has been designated a Grade II* listed building by English Heritage. The exact date of the foundation of a church in Ormskirk is unclear, although it is likely that there was a church on the site of the present one in Saxon time. The Anglican parish of Ormskirk encompassed the settlements of Lathom, Burscough, Bickerstaffe, Scarisbrick and Skelmersdale. Parts of the present church existed in the 12th century, although the building has been altered and added to over successive centuries.


Here is an 1848 historical perspective of Ormskirk by the topographer, Samuel A. Lewis:

"ORMSKIRK St Peter and St Paul, a market town and parish, and the head of a union, in the hundred of West Derby, S. division of Lancashire; containing, with the chapelry of Skelmersdale, and the townships of Bickerstaffe, Burscough, Lathom, and Scarisbrick, 13 miles north by northeast of Liverpool.

Another church was erected here in 1848; and at Bickerstaffe, Burscough, Lathom, and Skelmersdale are also chapels.

There are places of worship for Independents, Unitarians, and Wesleyans; also a Roman Catholic chapel, built about a century ago, and dedicated to St. Oswald.[1]
