Hartshead Pike Ashton under Lyne is the hill itself, which has a stone tower at its summit. Before we explore the history of the tower that sits atop of this hill, the history of the summit itself has a great deal to offer. It has been suggested that the original stone monument at the summit of Hartshead Pike was in fact. A tribute to King Knut (Canute) of England who is reputed to have visited the area in the 11th Century. Locally there is other evidence to support this theory, with areas named Knott Lanes and Knott Hill. Knott Hill is in fact overlooked by Hartshead pike and so ideal for a monument to a King, one who brought a golden age to England. King Knut reigned over England from 1016 to 1035, bringing law, stability, and prosperity to our shores.
