This year, the sun never stopped shining for Burscough Heritage Week which ran from 15th to 22nd June 2014. Events took place at the Grove and the Wharf and shops and businesses joined in to support the event.
Burscough Heritage Week, which during the week hosts classes from local schools to learn about our local heritage, and at the weekend opens its doors to everyone for a fun family weekend, has become a regular event on Burscough's calendar.

Burscough; fortress in the wood,
A place thats welcome and all is good.
The farmers grow potatoes, wheat and oats,
A canal runs through with colourful narrow boats.
The railway connects from Wigan to Southport,
Remembered brave men in Great Wars they fought.
A trophy winning football club,
Shops, businesses and a brewery in a pub.
The past is brought to life through the Wharf,
The old mill stands tall; the land it dwarfs.
A priory that’s no longer here,
But geese they fly to Martin Mere.
Burscough a great and historical place,
Views and sites full of beauty and grace.
Children grow, learn and play,
Burscough come and visit today.
