Ormskirk is a market town in West Lancashire, England, 13 miles north of Liverpool, 11 miles northwest of St Helens, 9 miles southeast of Southport and 18 miles southwest of Preston. Ormskirk is known for its gingerbread. Ormskirk is mainly a retail centre, which also has a number of bars and restaurants. The town has three main parks and a number of other smaller play areas and open spaces. The parish church of St Peter and St Paul is believed to be on the site of the original kirk, on a sandstone outcrop, and is the oldest building in the town. The town became known for its gingerbread over the years when local women would bake the gingerbread in their own homes and then take it to the staging inns to sell to passengers.
