This is the website of Ellesmere Park Residents Association. We hope to keep local residents and members informed of all things going on in the Park.

Ellesmere Park is an affluent, largely residential area of Eccles, Salford, Greater Manchester in the UK.

Bogus caller targeting Ellesmere Park estate

A bogus caller has been frequenting the Ellesmere Park estate knocking on doors of elderly and vulnerable residents, offering to do gardening work but wanting the money up front. Once he gets the money he leaves and doesn’t return to do the job.

The man is described as White, large build, 50 years old, Grey short hair, and stubble. He was wearing brownish coloured polo shirt, blue jeans, brown shoes and he also spoke in an Irish accent. If you have elderly or vulnerable family members or neighbours please can you ensure they follow this advice - You should NOT allow any person into your home unless the person is known to you or they have a pre-arranged appointment with you - Do not let any cold callers into your home. Additionally, you should always make sure the person is qualified to do the work that they are offering to do, ask to see proof of identity and qualifications. If you are not sure – do not let them in.

M602 Clarendon Footbridge - Drainage improvement and surfacing


To all EPRA members,  

Balfour Beatty have informed us of the closure of the M602 Clarendon footbridge for repairs.


M602 Clarendon Footbridge – Drainage improvement and surfacing


Highways England is responsible for managing and maintaining the motorway and trunk road network in Cheshire, Greater Manchester, Merseyside and South Lancashire

In 2016, we carried out works to improve the safety and appearance of Clarendon Footbridge. You may be aware that we are experiencing issues draining, resulting in puddles of water forming on the bridge. I am writing to inform you of works to resolve this drainage issue on Clarendon Footbridge.

 Works are due to start on or shortly after 30 July 2018 for approximately four weeks. This will take place seven days a week between the hours of 08:00 and 17:00.

 Please note that there will be some element of overnight working to suit certain operation of works.

 In order to facilitate and carry out these works safely, a 24 hour closure is required on Clarendon Footbridge during the dates stated above. A pedestrian diversion route will be in place. For more information, please see plan overleaf.

 When carrying out certain elements of works, you may notice an increase of noise levels in the area. Please be assured that we will do everything possible to minimise the noise disruption throughout the works.

 Works are subject to weather conditions therefore dates may change at short notice.

 We would like to apologise for any inconvenience these works may cause you. If you wish to discuss this project further or have any questions, please contact our 24hr Highways England Customer Care team by phone on 0300 123 5000 or email info@highwaysengland.co.uk.

 Kind regards,

Photographs of Ellesmere Park from a bygone era

We found a website called Manchester Postcards. On that site are several Edwardian and older pictures taken in and around Ellesmere Park.

Three Sisters declared nature reserve

Over the last two years the EPRA Committee have been working with officers of Salford City Council, the Salford Ranges and Natural England to establish the Three Sisters as a Local Nature Reserve (LNR).  Local Nature Reserves are for both people and wildlife. They are places with wildlife or geological features that are of special interest locally. They offer people special opportunities to study or learn about nature or simply to enjoy it.  

When David Jeffreys from Natural England visited the Three Sisters in May 2013 he was very impressed with the site, in particular the amount of use of the area by local residents.  Educational use of Local Nature Reserves is an important prerequisite to establishing an LNR.  During the visit, and quite unplanned, a group of students from the college came on to the Three Sisters with their tutor and began to undertake a survey of the wild life.  It could not have been more appropriate, even if we had planned the biology lesson on the Three Sisters to coincide with the visit of Natural England.  

We are pleased to report that the Local Authority has now designated the Three Sisters as a Local Nature Reserve.  A copy of the designation letter is here and a location map is here.  The LNR status will provide an additional level of protection for the Three Sisters and help in attracting funds to maintain the site in the future.
