Images of Burscough and Surrounding Areas
Few villages can lay claim to such a diverse and interesting history as Burscough, few can claim such an influential role in the industrial development of the county over the past few hundred years. There was a military presence from c1890 with the Army Ordnance Stores (REME Depot), Lathom Park Remount Depot and HMS Ringtail. The village and its surrounding areas have a rich heritage that at first may not be apparent.
It is only when you speak to local people or research the heritage of the area that the stories and pictures begin to paint a picture of the past that in turn makes the place we know today.
The village of Burscough is situated on the A59 trunk road midway between Liverpool and Preston in the District of West Lancashire.
