It forms the Civil Parish of Middleton; historically Middleton township was part of the Parish of Kirkby Lonsdale in Westmorland. Middleton Hall here is a farmhouse dating from the 14th century. The Church of the Holy Ghost was built in 1879 on the site of an earlier 17th century church.

Middleton is a village and a civil parish on the A683 road, in the South Lakeland district, in the county of Cumbria, England.
