More information about Ormskirk

Ormskirk is a town located in the West Lancashire district, England. It is approximately 20 miles north of Liverpool, and can trace its history back to at least the ninth century. Throughout the centuries, Ormskirk has been an important centre for several industries, including transportation, finance, and even motorsports, thanks to its conveniently placed location.


The population of Ormskirk, as of 2021, was estimated at around 16,000 people. Of this population, 92.1% identified as 'white' and the other 7.9% identified as belonging to a visible minority group. Of this visible minority group, Indian was the largest non-white group, accounting for 5.9% of the total population. Other non-white ethnicity groupings included Chinese (1.5%), Pakistani (0.5%) and African (0.2%).

The median age of the town's population was 40.2, with a higher than average proportion (21%) of the population falling under 18 years of age, and a lower than average proportion (17%) of the population being over the age of 65. The median household income of Ormskirk was approximately 34,000 GBP per annum, lower than both the Lancashire average (44,000 GBP) and the national average (45,000 GBP).

The Car Industry in Ormskirk

Ormskirk has a proud history of being at the very heart of the car industry in the United Kingdom. The town was home to W. Williams Ltd, an automotive company that sold cars, vans, campers and caravans. The company operated in the town from 1910 to 1969 and during this time, it produced and sold a wide range of vehicles, including the popular Vale Special and the Lambretta motor scooter.

After W. Williams Ltd. ceased operations in 1969, another automotive company — Acorn Motors — emerged in the town. Acorn Motors operated between 1969 and 1987 and sold a large range of cars, vans and commercial vehicles. Some of the vehicles that the company sold included the Austin Metro, the Peugeot 504, and the Talbot Sunbeam.

Despite the presence of two car companies in the town, the car industry in Ormskirk had largely declined by the late 1980s. Today, the car industry in the town is very small and consists of just a handful of independent garages that maintain, repair and restore a variety of cars and vans.

Ormskirk and the Finance Industry

Ormskirk is home to several finance companies, including Leeds Building Society and UK Invest. These companies provide a wide range of services, to both corporate and private customers throughout the local area.

Ormskirk has also been important to the economy thanks to its history of banking. The town was once home to the Ormskirk Bank, which was founded in 1870 and closed in 1888. The buildings that had housed the bank were later taken over by Barclays Bank and were used as the town's main banking centre until it closed in the late 1980s.

Motorsport in Ormskirk

The town of Ormskirk has a vibrant motorsports community. The Ormskirk Motor Club (OMC) was founded in 1975, and since then has become one of the most active clubs in the United Kingdom. The OMC hosts several events each year, including hill climbs, rally sprints, autocross races and even stage rallies. The club also hosts several social and charity events throughout the year, such as car shows and Superprix.


Ormskirk is a town with a long and interesting history. It has been an important centre in the car industry, the finance industry and motorsport throughout the centuries, and continues to be a key hub in the Lancashire region. The demographic details show a median age of 40.2 and a largely white population, with Indian being the largest non-white group. Although the car industry is much smaller than it once was, finance and motorsport remain important parts of the town's economy.
