"MIDLOE, was extra-parochial, and it still is for ecclesiastical purposes.
The civil parish rises from the River Kym on the south-west and the Diddington Brook on the north-east, and is crossed by a small stream running into the River Ouse. The soil is clay, growing wheat, oats and beans. The land is mostly arable, only a third being pasture with some woodland at Midloe Wood.
There is neither a church nor a village; the sparse population being scattered in farm houses and cottages. Midloe Grange near the southern boundary marks the site of the grange of Warden Abbey mentioned in the 12th century. The present house was built about 1590 and was surrounded by a moat, the east side of which has been filled-in.
The civil parish of Midloe was abolished in 1935 to help create the Southoe and Midloe civil parish. See also Midloe on the extra-parochial page."
