The Village of Broughton in Hampshire

Foords Farm is to be found at the north end of the village
next to the old Baptist Church, and only a short walk from the village centre where St Mary's Church, the pub, the shop and village hall are situated.

As you walk down the High Street look out for the village well dug in 1921 at the time of a prolonged drought.   When you get to the T junction you are at the centre of the village which was once a Market Square. Look across to the ancient west door of the beautiful 12th century St Mary's Church and walk through the churchyard to see the attractive columbarium (dovecote) in the churchyard.

On the corner the newly refurbished Greyhound public house serves first class Thai food. Opposite the church stands the Tally Ho public house where the hard-working Ryan and Kerry serve excellent food and good ale.   Further down the High Street is the village hall where the award-winning Community Shop is located.

Down the length of the village the gin-clear chalk stream Wallop Brook is criss-crossed by bridges, fords and two old watermills. Evidence of ancient water meadows is still discernible.
