Broadstone, Dorset is a small town near Poole in Southern England. Since 1840 it has grown from a small farm to be home to 10,000 people. Centering around the main road, The Broadway (B307) is a busy hub of shops, hairdressers, churches, schools and housing. It is notable in the area for its large recreation fields and heathland park, as well as the annual Christmas Parade and Lights.

The 24 acre Broadstone Heath possesses some of the original heathland which covered the Poole basin.

Further Broadstone history reveals that the town acquired its own railway station around 1872 – though this was 25 years after the railway first ran through it.

Originally known as New Poole Junction it later took the name Broadstone from the house.

Great change came to Broadstone with the railway although certain changes had already come about as a result of the Enclosures Act of 1822 which gave titles to individuals.

Gradually three communities became established.

Creekmoor, where a village blossomed from the bases of a mill and a farm.

Waterloo, where a community thrived on the back of an iron foundry close to what is now the Nuffield Trading Estate; and, of course, Broadstone, already swelling with around 50 mudwall cottages and continuing to grow rapidly throughout the 1800s.

The majority of Broadstone's population was employed in agriculture, mainly on smallholdings of a few acres which they would have claimed from heath. If not farming, brickmaking was another option as was the iron foundry.

The brickworks, which were located on the site which is now occupied by Broadstone's cricket pitch, was owned by Elias Sharland and produced many of the bricks required by what was a fast expanding Bournemouth in the late 19th century.
