Ellimore Tor

Ellimore Rock, Lower Rock Park

A grand small tor first identified by Steve Jenkins can be seen on the hillside above Ellimore Farm on the road to Hammerslake.

The upper part is the most impressive with further rocks extending through the trees below. Although in private enclosures the tor is clearly visible from the road so no need to try and access the site

The area is shown as 'Lower Rock Park' on the Tithe Map of 1836-46.
