Just off Chorley Old Road, this place takes its name from the Spanish, and
means 'serrated or jagged mountain'. The name used to belong to a row of old
cottages, demolished in the 1930's, and probably named by the builder early in
the 19th century influenced by an incident in the Peninsular Wars when a
Spanish Monastery called Montserrat was despoiled.
