The farm of Upper Hilton lies on the brow of the escarpment above Pietermaritzburg.

Misty rains maintain the area in perpetual greenness and Hilton, below the escarpment, is one of the loveliest residential districts of KwaZulu-Natal.

In 1872 the reverend W.O. Newham opened a school in the original farmhouse and this became known as Hilton College, today one of South Africa's leading private schools.
