Broughton Gifford is a village and civil parish about 1.5mi west of Melksham in Wiltshire, England. The parish includes the hamlets of Norrington Common and The Common.HistoryFormerly much of Broughton Gifford and the surrounding area was covered with woodland. Much of this was felled during the First and Second World Wars. Villagers long used the common to graze their livestock and grow their crops. Although the common was not included when the rest of the parish's lands were inclosed in 1783, eventually its agricultural uses died out. There were numerous ponds on the common, but the council decided to fill many of them in. There is currently a movement to re-establish the ponds.GeographyThe village has two parts: The lower village has the Church of England parish church of Saint Mary, the school, the village hall and the Fox public house. There are also two housing estates and some detached houses in this part. The higher part, The Common, is a large area of open land with houses around it. As at 2008 there were three ponds on the common, inhabited by a paddling of ducks in their breeding season. At one end of the common is The Bell public house, and the football pitch and bowling green. The River Avon forms a natural boundary to the south and east of the parish.Local governmentBroughton Gifford civil parish is in the area of Wiltshire Council unitary authority, which is responsible for all significant local government functions.
