Welcome to MAS

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 2019 plan events associated with Hopwood Mill Cottage.


Weekend dig at Hopwood Millers Cottage 13/14th July 10:00-15:30
Everyone is welcome but need to register. 
Volunteers will be able to register for one or both days of for half days.
Anyone who wants to take part but doesn’t want to dig will be able to assist with surveying, recording and if the weather is suitable finds processing.

If you are interested, you can contact Robert directly at robert.huddart@ntlworld.com
