Wheatsheaf Walk

Year of Completion: 2021

Budget: £178,000

Client: West Lancashire Council

Project Team: BCA Landscape

Wheatsheaf Walk is a further phase of public realm improvements to Ormskirk Town Centre, following on from Aughton Street (2008) and Moor Street (2015) to create a co-ordinated palette of high quality natural materials that compliment the architecture of this historic market town.

Working in collaboration with both West Lancashire Borough Council (WLBC) and Lancashire County Council, (LCC) a consistent approach has been agreed across the three projects over 12 years.

BCA Landscape worked up to Tender Stage with Ian Brew QS consultancy. The project was delivered on site by WLBC staff, with Arcus Consulting and Contractors Cubby.

The project provides new granite and porphyry paving, granite and timber seating, festoon lighting and planting focussed round a retained artwork pebble mosaic.

Every opportunity was taken to make the adjacent retail and commercial units more accessible from street level.
