Very few Lancastrians actually pronounce the 'l' in 'Skelmersdale'. Only those who have never heard it pronounced before, or who are trying to talk 'properly' do this. The town is pronounced 'Skemmsdale' and is abbreviated to 'Skem' The town is mentioned in the Doomsday Book as 100 acres of farmland. Skelmersdale was, for many years, a small, sleepy farming village. When the mining industry arrived in 1850, more and more people began to arrive, including miners from other areas of the country. The population of the town increased eightfold and, like many towns of the industrial era, it became hideously overcrowded. In 1874, The Lancet reported that it was a colliery village that had a 'pre-eminence in filth'. After the Second World War, someone decided that some people in Liverpool would like somewhere nicer to live. Thus, after the war, Skelmersdale was chosen to become one of the strings of New Towns that became dotted around the country. Vast council estates were built, as well as new schools, a large library, a shopping centre (the Concourse) and all the other things people thought a town would need.

The new roads were designed to keep the traffic flowing with roundabout upon roundabout, and very few traffic lights. Footpaths were built well away from the roads, and passed underneath them via subways if necessary. An industrial estate was built named Pimbo, and companies were offered reduced rates if they opened a factory there. Optimistically, a motorway was built linking Liverpool and the M6 that had two junctions for Skelmersdale. The part of Skelmersdale that existed before the redevelopment became known as Old Skem. The original residents were not overjoyed at their sleepy little village being taken over by a sudden influx of Scousers. Their familiar old town was transformed, even destroyed in parts. The former main street, Sandy Lane, was replaced by a shopping centre, and several old streets and communities, such as Stormy Corner, were destroyed. The whole character of the town changed to one closer to Liverpool than Lancashire. Local children picked up the newcomers' accent in school, and now the Skelmersdale accent is distinctly Scouse.

Unfortunately, many of the factories did not stay when the rents were increased. One of the largest, Thorn Television, closed completely. Many people decided to move away, some going back to Liverpool. When people got a better job, they would usually choose to leave the area. The teachers at the schools, the engineers at the factories, the librarians - all would often choose to commute into Skelmersdale rather than live there. Many of the council houses were unfilled, and the transcendental meditation movement were looking for a location for their ideal village. Milton Keynes, suspicious of the organisation, had already denied them permission to build there. Skelmersdale invited them to help fill hard-to-let council estates.
