Broughton-in-Furness Holiday Cottages
A picturesque market town with a traditional Georgian market square still in place, Broughton-in-Furness dates back to the 11th century, with its oldest building, St Mary’s Church, still standing today. Holidaymakers can journey through eras of fascinating local history, using the town as a base from which to explore the rest of the area.
Broughton-in-Furness’ market square is dominated by the Georgian obelisk that was originally erected to mark the jubilee of King George III in 1810. Fairs and events used to be held through the square and the community still read their town charter annually on 1st August: a nod to the neighbourhood’s heritage. Indeed, other remnants of the town’s rich history are also plain to see in the centre, with stocks for misbehavers and the original fish slabs used to sell locally-caught fish both still standing.
