In the year 1618, five noblemen, at the head of whom was Lord Burlington, 19 Baronets, and 25 gentlemen of the county subscribed 360L. to the establishment of annual horse races here. They were held on the third Thursday in March, and are occasionally continued. Tradition says, that these are the oldest races in England."

Churches

  • Here are photographs of Churches in the parish:
    • St. Andrew's Church, Middleton on the Wolds. I took this photograph on a Sunday morning in June. The bells were ringing to bring the people to church, but the church doors were locked!!! You will note from the photograph that it has been decided that it is better to look at trees than the church.
    • This is the best photo I could get of the Church from the road, you can only see part of the tower!
    • The Methodist Church, Middleton on the Wolds.
