One of the great attractions of living in Ellesmere Park is the rich and varied history of the environment.
As a place to travel through, the Romans left their mark along local tracks back in the mists of time. We know this because the archaeological remains of a Roman road remain intact on the Three Sisters site even today.
As a place to live, the first Earl of Ellesmere set the ball rolling back in the late 1800s. That was when the open fields and parklands north of what is now Monton Road were set aside for residential development for the great and good of the region. Grand homes were built, beautiful gardens created, many of which still survive today … and some of our residents are lucky enough to live in them. Although, as far as we know, sadly, there’s not an Earl in sight.
