Welcome to Broughton Community Archive

This huge collection of photographs and documents was created over a period of 65 years by a village doctor, Dr Robert Parr, and donated to the village, together with the space to store it in our village hall. We are pleased that he was able to see the new home for his collection before his death in December 2020. We are also adding some more detailed articles on subjects relating to Broughton. Please click on the History of Our Village tab above to access these. We hope that over time we shall add to the archive from other collections held in the village. Find out more about us or get in touch.
