Dating back to the 11thC, Broughton-in-Furness has much to please the visitor - a pretty, cobbled square complete with a splendid horse chestnut tree, enclosed by shops, pubs and homes - many of them Georgian in origin. The town provides an ideal base for a walking or climbing holiday, with ample opportunity to explore the rugged beauty of the Duddon Valley and the quieter Lake District fells. Norman Nicholson, one of Britain's finest twentieth century poets and William Wordsworth, both immortalised this area in their writing and poetry. The village was home to Branwell Bronte, brother of the Bronte sisters, for a short time.
