About this location
The Yorkshire region
Middleham is situated on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales but is also within easy driving distance of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park and the coastal towns of Scarborough, Filey, Whitby, Sandsend, Robin Hoods Bay and Runswick Bay. The surrounding towns and cities Knaresborough, Ripon, Harrogate, York and Leeds are also easily accessible by car.
The present English Heritage site protecting Middleham Castle (started in 1190) is a very short walk from Middle Cottage. It was known as the "Windsor of the North". The castle is now a ruin, after having been dismantled in 1646. The keep, which was built by Robert Fitz Ralph in the 1170s, survives to this day along with the 13th century chapel and the 14th century gatehouse.
Middleham Castle and its links with Richard III are well documented and are of significant historical interest. Richard arrived in Middleham in 1462 to learn the skills of knighthood. He used the castle as his political base. Richard married the Earl of Warwick's daughter Anne and their son Edward was born in Middleham Castle around 1473.
During the time of Richard III, Middleham was a bustling Market town. The town itself is built around two markets; a large mediaeval cross, which is now topped by a relatively modern iron cross in the Celtic style, dominates the larger, lower market. The upper, or swine market, centers around the remains of a 15th-century market cross and an oblong line of steps.
Most buildings in the old part of Middleham were built after 1600, though the old rectory of the church has some mediaeval elements incorporated into it.
The Church of Saints Mary and Alkelda was founded in 1291 and today is mainly of 14th and 15th century architecture, though there are a few stones indicating the existence of a church on that site perhaps a century before that.
Today the town is a modern centre of horse racing in the UK and is home to the Middleham Trainers' Association. The first racehorse trainer to train at Middleham was Isaac Cape in 1765. Today there are thirteen racehorse trainers based in the area including Mark Johnston, Jedd O'Keefe, James Bethell (chairman of the Middleham trainers) and Ben Haslam. Racing is the number one employer in the town. The Middleham stables are open every year on Good Friday with Tourism being the second biggest industry in the town.
