Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Middleton Park is a semi-wooded area in Middleton, West Yorkshire, England, south of Leeds centre, comprising a golf course, a small lake, woods and a clearing.

The Middleton Railway runs nearby, between Moor Road and Park Halt.

The area contains a large number of "shaft mounds" which are thought to mark sites of medieval mining. Survey work was done in 2007–2008 to discover more about the mounds, which seem to represent various mining techniques, including bell pits, cog and rung and whim gins. The professional archaeologist Martin Roe led the team from the Friends of Middleton Park and the South Leeds Archaeology Group.
