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.

East of here is Johnson Fold, west carries on into Wallsuches, south west onto Old Kiln Lane North would take you past the Bob Smithy to Colliers Row to the top of Smithills Moor.
