Hello, and welcome to Middleton Archaeological Society or MAS.
MAS was formed in 2011 following an archaeological investigation of Middleton’s historic parish church – St. Leonards.
Our society is dedicated to researching the archaeological and historical fabric of the town of Middleton.
We have a full and varied events programme which is open to members and non-members alike. We host monthly talks at our adopted HQ – The Olde Boar’s Head. These talks cover a multitude of topics and are presented by locally, nationally or even an internationally renowned figures. We have an active programme of archaeological investigations and in 2017 plan events associated with Hopwood Mill Cottage and St Leonard’s
We are surveying St Leonard’s churchyard on the 21st March 2017 (Booking Essential)
Archeological Investigations at Hopwood will resume on 11th April 2017
