Welcome to the web site of...
Friends of Middleton Park
Middleton Park is situated 4 miles from the City Centre in urban South Leeds. Of its 630 acres, 200 are ancient woodland, there are also grasslands, children's play area and other recreational areas. There is a Visitor Centre with a cafe - for opening times see below.
The Park does not have an official postcode, but directions to the main entrance on Town Street can be found by using the postcode LS10 3SH. Also see our How to Find Middleton Park web page.
The Friends of Middleton Park (FoMP) were formed in 2003 to promote local interest and involvement in the park and its woodland.
As well as its rich natural history, Middleton also has a fascinating local history including coal mining and the Middleton Railway. Two areas of the park have been designated a Scheduled Ancient Monument due to the presence of historic coal mining remains, and a community archaeology project recorded the mining archaeology of the area in 2006 - 2008.
