History

By the 18th century, Ormskirk was already an important agricultural and market town, but with the arrival of the railway in 1849 it rapidly developed as an attractive residential area for Liverpool's prosperous businessmen. With the new houses came the park, a place for gentle exercise or relaxation and a favourite walk for nannies and their prams.
