Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Broughton is a large village and civil parish in the borough of Kettering, in Northamptonshire, England. Its population in 2001 was 2,047 people. The village is located around 2 miles (3 km) south-west of Kettering, next to the A43 road (it was bypassed in 1984).Broughton has a long history, being referred to as "Burtone" in the Domesday Book. The church (St. Andrew), which is mostly early 14th century, incorporates part of a (12th century) Norman aisleless church at the south-west angle, including the south doorway with colonettes, scallop capitals and zigzags. The village has some notable Jacobean houses[2] Further adding to its cosmopolitan image is its links to the former X factor superstar who owns a property in the village. It is thought that in Broughton the phrase "chico time" was invented.show more
