Broughton Hall has been in the hands of the Tempest family for the last 900 years. An undated 14th-century document records the acquisition of a house, watermill and part of the manor of Broughton by Sir John Tempest. The landscape park was created in the 18th and 19th centuries. William Andrews Nesfield designed the terraced garden in around 1855.
