Broughton In Furness
Broughton In Furness lies just south of the Duddon Valley and west of Coniston.
It has a square complete with obelisk and stocks and a few real lakeland inns including The Manor, The Black Cock,The Kings Head and just out of the village, the High Cross.
A short distance out of the village is Broughton Mills where you will find the excellent Blacksmiths Arms a real piece of Lakeland heritage with a time continuum all its own!
The village has a bakery/cybercafe and a butchers/grocers owned and run by Ian Tyson who was a recent finalist in the "best cumberland sausage" competition plus a post office, outdoor clothing shop and craft gallery.
Just beyond the Square is a great playground for the little ones and a one and 1/2 mile walk up the old railway line toward Woodland and Coniston.
