The Attic - Ormskirk's Past

What do you know about Ormskirk’s history? Maybe you know something that no one else does!

Well now’s your chance to tell the world. Submit information or a photo and see it included in the West Lancashire’s first virtual reality museum and gallery.

The attic will focus on Ormskirk’s past as far back as we can go, from the founding of the town to the present day.

We are asking people to search through their attics and dig out old shoe boxes of long forgotten photographs, taken before the digital age. We would like to see fantastic images of Ormskirk through the 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s,  90s, the millennium and beyond.

What images and information do we want?

As well as your photos we are also looking for oral histories, personal stories, memories of growing up in Ormskirk, details of events that took place such as parades, fayres and information about how global events have influenced Ormskirk.

Images or scans can also be taken of documents, equipment or memorabilia relevant to the town’s history.
