Between 1849 and 1964 Broughton was served by Broughton & Bretton railway station.
Broughton War Memorial Institute is situated on Main Road opposite the junction with Broughton Hall Road.
This building was built in lieu of a memorial stone to commemorate
the sacrifice by residents of the village in military conflicts between 1914 and 1919,
