Clocktower Virtual Museum & Gallery
The Clock Tower is an important landmark in the centre of Ormskirk Town Centre, it was built in 1876 and replaced the market cross to become a well known landmark and meeting place.
It is for this reason that the name, “Clock Tower” has been chosen as the name for a virtual museum and gallery. This will not only form a unique online archive for Ormskirk, but will also offer you the chance to submit information to tell your own story or that of a relative.
The Clock Tower will have four distinct areas, dedicated to specific topics:
THE ATTIC – Ormskirk’s History from its founding by Orme to the present day
THE TOWER ROOM – West Lancashire’s journey through the pandemic. Told through the eyes of local residents who have experienced it first hand.
THE GRAND HALL – Ormskirk one hundred years from now, including contributions from school children and the general public.
THE COURTYARD GALLERY – which will be a programmable community space
As each archive is being built there will be a digital launch event. Dates for these events will be made available here as soon as they are confirmed.
