  • Broughton - Broughton, only a short distance from Scunthorpe, is home to many of the town's steelworkers.
    Famous for its lily woods, it lies by the Ermine Street, one of the great Roman roads.
    The village is thought to have once been a Roman settlement after the discovery of coins, tiles and pottery fragments. It is now one of the most active and lively villages in the region, retaining its rural community atmosphere. Attractions in the village include the beautiful St Mary's Church.
    Part of the church is 15th Century but patches of herringbone brickwork and small windows on the south side were built by the Saxons, probably the nave of the church. In the late 17th Century Abraham de la Pryme, the vicar of Broughton, kept a diary of every day activities which has become an important historical document.
    Every year horse-riding enthusiasts and dog lovers converge on Broughton for the Agricultural Society's Annual Dog and Horse Show. The Brigg Round Scenic Drive also takes in the delights of the village, passing through Broughton Woodlands that extend into the Appleby parish. Golf fanatics will be at home in Broughton; the 27-hole Forest Pines course has recently opened up and was voted best new golf course in 1997. Broughton is situated six and a half miles from Scunthorpe off the B1207.
