Middle Stoneham, also known as plain Middle, or Middle Street, was a scattered village at North Stoneham on the Stoneham Estate, and is often described as 'North Stoneham village', although there was no village of that name. Middle Stoneham adjoined the northeast boundaries of North Stoneham Park. The area south of the village was known as the Church End.
