It was here, it seems, that a primitive church was built, which gave the emerging village its name of Churchtown, the parish being North Meols (pronounced "meals", not "mells").

The first real evidence of an early settlement here is in the Domesday Book, in which the area is called Otergimele.

This was one of the conditions required by the Hesketh family when they made land available for development in the 19th century.

Hesketh Park at the northern end of the town is named after them, having been built on land donated by Rev. The earliest recorded human activity in the region was during the Middle Stone Age, when mesolithic hunter gatherers were attracted by the abundant red deer and elk population, as well as the availability of fish, shellfish and woodland.

The town is 16.7 miles (26.9 km) north of Liverpool and 14.8 miles (23.8 km) southwest of Preston.
