Burscough Wharf

Face For Business’ offices are situated at Burscough Wharf, which is a unique development housing 12,000 square feet of canal side buildings, situated in the market town of Burscough in West Lancashire.


British Waterways purchased the wharf site in December 2008 and transformed it into a new leisure and retail destination, providing premises for several local business including hairdressers, a tea shop, a music school, a gallery gift shop and a couple of restaurants. One of the main aims of the development was to transform the town centre by linking in with the Leeds to Liverpool Canal to connect Burscough to surrounding towns. It is hoped that Burscough Wharf will become a hub of activity for the local community and the residents of neighbouring villages, such as Ormskirk, Parbold, Newburgh and Rufford.

Coming to Work at the Wharf

Not many people can say they go to work in purpose built office accommodation alongside a canal, can they? We at Face For Business, along with the other Burscough Wharf tenants, are greeted with a calming and serene setting with a myriad of barges drifting down the canal each day. As well as seeing colourful barges, decorated in the traditional manor, there is always a paddling of ducks making merrily along the waters. Can you just picture it? Viewing such a sight on the way into work can make you feel calm, content and ready for the working day ahead. Knowing that you are working in the heart of a local community, such as Burscough also instils a sense of pride.
