Do not confuse Broughton with Brant Broughton (which is between Newark and Sleaford).
This village and parish are three miles west-north-west of Glanford Brigg and about a mile north of the M180 Motorway. The New River Ancholme brushes the east side of the parish. The old Roman way, Ermine Street, runs along the west edge of the village as it runs between Lincoln and Winteringham. Scawby parish lies to the south. The parish sits on the Cliff range of hills, covers over 7,000 acres and includes the hamlets of Manby, Gokewell and Castlethorpe.
If you are planning a visit:
- The western part of the parish is covered by Broughton Woodland (West Wood and Gedbury Wood), a part of the ancient forest in this area.
- Broughton holds an annual Dog and Horse show.
- For golf enthusiasts, the 27-hole Forest Pines course, just south of Broughton, was voted best new golf course in 1997. Fred ROBERTS has a photograph of the Hotel, taken in 2005.
- By automobile, take the M180 between Scunthorpe and Grimsby (where it is the A180). Turn north onto the B1207 (the old Ermine Street) and drive about 1 mile into the village.
- John BEAL has a photograph of the Village Sign on Geo-graph, taken in April 2004.
- Stop by the Village Hall and get a schedule of forth-coming activities.
- In the 1930s, Berry Brothers operated a daily bus service to Scawby and Brigg. Daisy Motors also ran daily service to Scunthorpe.
- Check for bus service from the Linconshire Road Car Company of Lincoln.
