Middleton is a town in the Metropolitan Borough of Rochdale, Greater Manchester, England, on the River Irk 5mi south-southwest of Rochdale and 4.4mi north-northeast of Manchester city centre. In 2001, Middleton had a population of 45,580. It lies on the northern edge of Manchester, with Blackley to the south and Moston to the south east.Historically part of Lancashire, Middleton's name comes from it being the centre of several circumjacent settlements. It was an ecclesiastical parish of the hundred of Salford, ruled by aristocratic families. The Church of St Leonard is a Grade I listed building. The Flodden Window in the church's sanctuary is thought to be the oldest war memorial in the United Kingdom, memorialising the archers of Middleton who fought at the Battle of Flodden in 1513. In 1770, Middleton was a village of twenty houses, but in the 18th and 19th centuries it grew into a thriving and populous seat of textile manufacture and it was granted borough status in 1886.
