Middleton is a hamlet in the Eastern Cape province of South Africa, situated on the banks of the Fish River,[1] off the N10 road and about 30km south of Cookhouse.[2] It was established in 1879 as a train stop, and the station (which has since been converted into a pub) was one of the first buildings to be erected.[1] The hamlet is currently in the ownership of the Noupoort Christian Care Center.[3]
