      The Anglican parish church of St. Leonard in Middleton is one of the oldest in England. Information about it date back to 1412 year.

      On the south side of the building erected wide square tower, which is a wooden bell tower, built in 1667. Under it installed mechanical watches with manual winding, which are still in operation. In 1896 the dilapidated building was renovated and completely restored, with the result that there were elements of the Gothic style. The building has a complex structure with massive arched cast-iron columns.
