Welcome to the Myddle and Broughton Parish Council Website
THE AREA Map
Myddle and Broughton is an amalgamation of a few villages and smaller hamlets set in rural Shropshire. The main centres of population are Harmer Hill and Myddle and the Parish is mid way between Shrewsbury and Wem and Ellesmere. Population 1,333 (Census Data 2011)
The area has one retail outlet – a village shop opened recently as part of a new housing development in Myddle. There is no post office, the one in Harmer Hill being closed as part of the reorganisation of the postal service, and no library, although the County Library Service visits the villages on a regular basis. The area has three well established public houses, two in Harmer Hill and one in Yorton. The public house in Myddle is in the process of modernisation.
There are Village Halls in Harmer Hill and Myddle, offering well appointed accommodation for community use. The Council recognises the value of these halls and gives grant aid annually to help with the upkeep.
Myddle also has an excellent primary school with first class facilities and a very good reputation for teaching and learning.
In the area there are two Parish Churches, one in Myddle and the other in Yorton with a Chapel located in Harmer Hill.
There is a Recreation Ground in both of the main villages with a Children’s Play Area on the Myddle site. The equipment was purchased following fund raising by a dedicated local committee, who then passed the area on to the Council which maintains and insures it.
