Welcome to Broughton District History Group

Broughton is located 3 miles North West of Wrexham town centre. Broughton comprises the villages of Brynteg, Berse, Caego, Gatewen, Lodge, Moss, New Broughton, Pentre Broughton and Southsea.

Our group was originally founded in the 1980s and reconvened in 2004. It was the result of a growing interest in genealogy, family history and local history and the enthusiasm of members of the family history classes held at The Memorial Centre, Brynteg, Wrexham.

We are committed to preserving our past for future generations and would love to hear from anyone with an interest in our area.
