Bracewell and Brogden is a civil parish in the West Craven area of the Borough of Pendle in Lancashire, England. According to the 2001 census it had a population of 238, increasing slightly to 244 at the 2011 census.[1] The parish includes Bracewell (at grid reference SD863485) and Brogden (at SD858472); historically, both were in the West Riding of Yorkshire.

Toponymy

Bracewell: from a personal name, either Braegd or Breiđ, + 'well' = 'spring or stream': hence, 'Braegd's/Breiđ's spring or stream' [2]

Brogden: 'The valley of the brook'.[3]

History

The old Roman road from Ribchester to Ilkley passes through the parish, with the remains of a 4th-century Romano-British farmstead known as Bomber Camp located next to the boundary with Gisburn.[4]
