    Hi I wonder if you can help with research on my .family history
    My Brother , Peter Liddle , was born in Macclesfield ,March 1943 ( no exact date) , but the family had no connections with that area , all being cotton workers in Middleton . I wonder if this may be due to evacuation during the was and if so was this common practice.

    Also I am trying to access parish records for both St Leonards Church and St Micheals and wonder if you have a link ?
    Normally I would visit the library but of course not possible in the unusual time

    many thanks

    I wonder if you can help. I have been clearing out my grandfathers belongings and have come across a number of books and photographs relating to Middleton and the surrounding area from 1860 to WW1. Would these be if any interest to anyone at Middleton heritage? I can’t bring myself to throw them away but am not really sure what to do with them!
