Richard Gough, author of "Antiquities and Memories of the Parish of Myddle", and "Observations concerning the seats in Myddle and the families to which they belong" was born in 1635 and died in 1723. He was educated in Myddle and Broughton, and lived at Newton on the Hill.

To celebrate the 300th anniversary of Gough's account of village life, a group of 18 local people created an illustrated pack of six walks around Myddle which have become known as the 'Gough Walks'. Further information about these can be found by following the 'Walk & Cycle' link from the myddle.net homepage.
