Historically a part of Lancashire, the village and area is so named because of a large clock face that adorned the Inn. The name was also adopted by a colliery in the area. The Clock Face public house, although not the original building, is built close to the original location and maintains the naming tradition.

The area is currently served by Lea Green railway station on the northern route of the Liverpool to Manchester Line.
