Skelmersdale town, or Skem, is located in West Lancashire, North West region of England. The development of the town was almost at the same as the Industrial Revolution. The town has been an important coal camp from the early 19th century. It accommodates both forestry and housing estates. Skem is found on a valley where River Tawd runs through.

In 1961, Skelmersdale was named a New Town. It has a strong association with Liverpool because numerous residents of the city moved to Skelmersdale. In the last years of the 20th century, the town has its economic difficulties, leading to high crime rate in the '70s. However in 2012, the county of West Lancashire envisioned Skem to be a thriving town centre. Construction of new establishments such as shops and restaurants were proposed.

Today, the town centre houses The Conny, a shopping centre, as well as other smaller shopping areas. The base of Matalan, a clothing store is located in Skem. Much of its economic growth is credited to the housing industry, but other industries also thrive in the town.
