Broxton lies around 11 miles south of Chester in the rolling countryside of the Cheshire Plains, in the hills around Broxton there are a number of disused sandstone quarries, the sandstone from which is to be found in many of the local buildings around Broxton. Together with the sandstone that was used for construction there was also sand quarried here and this was used for cleaning purposes, but in the main the area has been a small settlement relying on local agriculture. In nearby Bickerton evidence of copper mining dates back to the late 17th century and The Old Royal Oak at Broxton was renamed The Coppermine, containing memorabilia and pictures relating to mining. In the 19th century the railways came to Broxton and were used mainly by local cheese producers who used to transport their produce to the market at Whitchurch, Indeed near the Egerton Arms at Broxton was a cheese warehouse and trees were planted here to keep the cheese cool whilst it was maturing. Today Broxton consists of a few homes alongside the A41 from Chester to Whitchurch, it remains a small village with some splendid views of the surrounding countryside as there has been little development here over the years. Away from the main road it is worth taking a stroll along the nearby country lanes where the panoramic views of the Cheshire Plains are hard to match.
