    Only 50 years after sugar cane was introduced into the West Indies in the early 17th century, it was being refined in the market town of Ormskirk in north-west England. This fascinating piece of local history charts the rise and fall of the sugar refining industry in that region by following the fortunes of the various entrepreneurs who invested in the process in Liverpool, Chester, Warrington, Manchester, Lancaster and Whitehaven.
