Balgowan is situated in the central portion of the Midlands Meander between Nottingham Road and Lidgetton.
Balgowan has extended its orginal geographical location from a romantic old trading store and a train station where the local timber is picked up to surrounding farms in the Midlands.
Landmarks to define this area would be Indigo Fields, near the magnificent Michaelhouse School (the boarding school for boys with the best reputation in South Africa. The huge complex, built in the English brick gothic style, als has a beautiful and spacious chapel which is open to the public.), Millgate Cottage & The Glass Studio, La Lampara Restaurant and Kingdom Weavers, however some residents even talk of Upper and Lower Balgowan! (Could the Colonial blood be back again?!) Never-the-less, this is a beautiful part of the Midlands and well worth spending time here…
