Broughton is a small town and civil parish situated on the Roman Ermine Street, in the North Lincolnshire district of Lincolnshire, England. It is situated approximately 2mi north-west from the town of Brigg. The hamlets of Wressle, Castlethorpe, and part of Scawby Brook lie within the parish boundaries.A settlement existed at Broughton in the Neolithic Stone Age (New Stone Age). Stone tools have been found particularly on the commons near Wressle. Pottery was discovered at a house on Ermine Street in 1956, thought to date back to the Bronze Age period. There were burials discovered around 1850 in the commons to the north-east of Broughton.Broughton's St Mary's Church is thought to date back to the 11th century with major alterations in the 12th, 14th and 17th centuries. Gokewell Priory was founded nearby in the late 12th century to house a community of nuns.The Baronetcy of Broughton was created 11 December 1660 for Sir Edmund Anderson and became extinct on the death of the 9th Baron, Sir Charles Henry John Anderson, 8 October 1891.To the west and north, Broughton has extensive woodlands that stretch toward Dragonby, Scunthorpe and Appleby. These were granted by the late Rupert Dixon, who placed the land in the control of a trust for its care and maintenance, and to provide public access. The south of the woods sits one of the few 4-star hotels in the area, and which has a 27-hole golf course.
