‘In 1876, Joe and Jim Waterhouse and four of their friends purchased a one key flute and a drum, founding the Middleton Perseverance Drum and Pipe Band. The first outings by the band were to local pubs where they played in exchange for ale or lemonade (some of its members were not of drinking age). This earned the band the nickname “The Pop and Ale Boys” ... By 2000, the Middleton Band had formed a successful youth band, continuing the tradition of pop and ale ... By the time the band celebrated its 125th anniversary in 2002, the thriving youth band had provided the senior band with many of its players ... The band’s motif is the Middleton Archer. Bowmen from the area fought at the Battle of Flodden under Sir Richard Assheton, who in 1524 enlarged the Norman church of St Leonard’s, which stands in the heart of Middleton. The Band enjoys wide support from the people of Middleton, and regularly gives public and private concerts as well as leading processions through the town.‘
