Broxtowe is a council estate in the City of Nottingham which is part of the Aspley ward. The estate is located 3 miles (5 km) from the City Centre and lies west of Aspley and Cinderhill, south of Bulwell, east of Strelley and north of Bilborough. At the 2001 census, the estate had a population of 4,847.[2]


The name Broxtowe comes from the old Anglo Saxon name Broculstowe, which is thought to refer to a dwelling-place, but the name could refer to the stoe of someone named Brocul.[3] It is also thought that the estate was named after Broxtowe Hall which was located off Broxtowe Lane,[4] but was demolished in 1937.[5]

Construction of the estate commenced in the 1930s, and in 1937, Roman coins and pottery were discovered by the workmen who were engaged in constructing the sewers and the roads for the council estate. It was assumed that the estate was once the site of a Castra, but research proved it was a British hut settlement.[6]
