The Pursgloves of Middleton by Youlgreave - [MBYY]

Middleton by Youlgreave was a small agricultural hamlet above Bradford Dale and the River Bradford.

The village was rebuilt in the 1820's by the architect Thomas Bateman, and the present houses and small church date from that time.  The church of St Michael and All Angels was unused for many years and was restored in 1989.  It is now used for a Sunday service on the first Sunday of the month.
