and has both a spire and a separate tower. Rufford Old Hall,

The name Skelmersdale is of Viking origin but the town's
history can be traced back to Roman times, when it was a resting
place for Roman soldiers. Skelmersdale today is a vibrant town which
boasts many excellent recreational facilities, including the 300
acre Beacon Country Park which combines woodland walks and
open space and provides a panorama of spectacular views, whilst the
Tawd Valley trail, with its woodland, wildlife and meadows winds
lazily through the centre of the town.
