About us

About Head2Middleton Archaeological Society 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.

Grass Roots
Our emphasis is on historical and archaeological investigations through grass-roots community engagement. We encourage active participation in all our research and events.

Middleton’s Rich History
We are self-funded through memberships and we welcome all with an interest in Middleton and it’s rich history and archaeology.

Events 2015Regular Events

The society organises regular events throughout the year.  During the spring and summer we have several archaeological investigations in Middleton.  We also have an interest in recording old graffiti in Middleton Cluster buildings.

We offer a full and varied programme of talks  at the Old Boar’s Head on the last Thursday of the month which compliment our archaeological programme and also provides insights into other fields and themes of archaeology and history.

Our monthly talks programme is held in our adoptive home of the Olde Boar’s Head on Long Street, Middleton.  These talks are usually scheduled for the last Thursday of the month (we do not have one in December) and the talks start at 7.30pm.  These talks are open to all, we ask for a small entrance fee of £3 for non-members.

All of our events are an opportunity for people who share similar interests to us to come along and see if they what we are doing and would like to join in.

Parkfield House was their home. I have a few photos of it I would be delighted to share. I would love to know more about it if anyone has any information. Yours. Oliver.
