Newburgh (population 1,080) is a rural village and civil parish in Lancashire, England.

Newburgh is located about five miles from Ormskirk. Its history can be traced back to 1304 when a licence was granted to start a weekly market. The village has a conservation area at its centre and includes many historic (Carolean and Georgian) buildings, including the schoolhouse of 1714.[2] In 2006 it won the Champion Village Class for the second time in the Lancashire Best Kept Village Competition. Accommodation is available at the Red Lion Hotel and there is a post office, village shop and tearoom. There is an Anglican church (Christ Church, founded in 1857);[3] a primary school and a scout group, the 56th Ormskirk (Newburgh and Dalton). Newburgh Village Fete takes place every year in June, starting with the procession (including Newburgh all girls Morris dancers, the previous year's Rose Queen, and various other treats), later is the crowning of the new Rose Queen. Newburgh is twinned with the town of Newburgh, Indiana, USA.

Previously part of Lathom and Burscough Urban District, Newburgh became part of Ormskirk Urban District in 1931 and part of West Lancashire district in 1974. The Newburgh ward comprises the parishes of Newburgh and Lathom. Historically it was part of the parish of Lathom.
