Middleton One Row is a village in the borough of Darlington and the ceremonial county of County Durham, England. It is situated to the east of Darlington, just north of the River Tees. The village originally consisted of a single row of houses on the north side of the village green, giving the village its name. Medieval villages commonly feature houses on facing sides of the village green but in Middleton One Row the south side of the green drops quickly to the River Tees.

Origin of place-name[edit]

This Middleton, unlike other places of the name is not from Old English middel "middle" and tun "farm". Instead, the name is from Old English mycel "large (compare "much")" + tun "farm". The name was recorded as Micletone in 1148.
