Afrikaans name: Middleton
Approaching Middleton from the south
Although a mission station had been set up in 1850, the small hamlet of Middleton was really established in 1879 as a stopping point for the train service. Consequently, one of the first buildings built was the station. It still exists but is used as a pub today.
Middleton consists of a handful of buildings including the police station, pub, post office and a few other buildings.
There is not a lot to do here but there is a petting zoo at the pub and a farm stall worth visiting. There is a camping ground and some B&B accommodation available.
Middleton is situated on the banks of the Fish River and the nearest town is Cookhouse which is 30 km to the north.
