About Ormskirk and the surrounding area

Edge Hill University is a 15 minute walk from the historic market town centre of Ormskirk. Set on a beautiful campus but walking distance to a town centre with a growing nightlife, Edge Hill represents the best of both worlds. The town has several historic landmarks including the Gothic-style Grade II listed Clock Tower erected in 1876, and the Church of St Peter and St Paul dating from around the 12th Century, one of only three in England to include both a central spire and a western tower, and unique to the North West.
