The name Middleton is said to have derived from the Old English term meaning ‘middle farm’; which most likely refers to the middle settlement on the road from Morley and Rothwell. Evidence of habitation from the Bronze Age and the Palaeolithic Age have been found in Middleton in the form of flint and bronze weapons. There is also evidence of Roman settlements which were found in 1607 and 1823.
Shaft mounds, waggonways and other features from the Middle Ages have been found in Middleton and evidence coal mining at that time. The market for coal grew with Leeds and its industry at the time and so did the pits in Middleton.
Founded in 1758, the Middleton Railway is the oldest continuously working railway in Britain. Owned by Charles Brandling from 1733 to 1804, the railway was a horse-drawn wooden waggonway which linked the colliers at Middleton to Cassons Close on Leeds. The first locomotive to run on the Middleton Railway was ‘Salamanca’, built by Matthew Murray in Holbeck.
