The Former Girls’ & Infants’ School

This splendid building was once a school.  It was built in 1837 and was called the United Charity School.  Children in Ormskirk were lucky to have a school to go to but life was hard.  The children had to provide money for coal for the fire and when there was no coal, the school log book says “children so cold they were crying”.
