Broughton Beck


















Broughton Beck


Occupying a pleasant valley in the foothills of the Lake District, the village of Broughton Beck is unusually divided into two distinct halves, separated by fields.  Originally an agricultural community serving scattered farms, Broughton Beck is now predominantly a dormitory village of nearby Ulverston


Like many villages in Cumbria, Broughton Beck has lost it’s services, formerly possessing a shop, post office, a pub and a frequent bus service.  There is now little to detain the Cumbria Way walker here
