Map of Broughton and surrounding areas

Broughton is situated to the north of the City of Preston. Primarily where the A6 towards Lancaster crosses the B5269 (Whittingham Lane), although the civil parish boundaries also take in sections of D'urton Lane, Haighton Green Lane and Eastway to the South.


The Neighbourhood Development Plan for Broughton parish area has now been submitted to Preston City Council. It was The delivered in person to Cllr Swindells at Preston Town Hall on Tuesday 14th March.

Drivers heading towards the M6 from Broughton are advised to allow more time for their journeys, due to the closure of the dedicated eastbound M55 filter lane. Vehicles can still access the eastbound slip road onto the M55 from Broughton Roundabout, but the dedicated lane from the A6 has closed. This has led to increased queues particularly at peak times.
