Broadstone is a town and suburb of Poole in Dorset, England. It is located 3mi from Hamworthy railway station and 7mi from Bournemouth International Airport. The town has a population of 10,256 according to the 2001 Census, increasing to 10,303 at the 2011 Census.Since 1840, it has grown from a small farm to a suburb of 10,000 people. Centred on the main road (the B3074), 'The Broadway' is busy hub of shops, churches, schools and housing. The shops consist of Costa Coffee, Bennett's Bakery, Thorntons card shop and also has a jewellery shop. Broadstone is notable for its large recreation fields and park, as well as an annual Christmas parade and lights. The 24acre Broadstone Heath possesses some of the original heathland which covered the Poole Basin.HistoryIn 1840, "Broadstone Farm" was built, and a railway line bypassed it in 1847. Its first church was built in 1853, which later became the Scout hall. The first railway station was built in 1872 and named "New Poole Junction" and, after several name revisions, became "Broadstone" in 1890. Broadstone First School originated as a Dame school, founded in 1871. At the turn of the century, lavender oil started being produced. This ceased in 1935 when the factory burnt down, but much lavender can still be found in the area. Rapid expansion of the town has since occurred, with the development of the Pine Springs housing estate and the opening of additional schools to cope with the increase in population.
