Herne and Broomfield is a civil parish within the City of Canterbury. The parish is situated to the north of Canterbury in Kent. The seaside town of Herne Bay is the other side of the A299 road, Thanet Way that marks the northern boundary of the parish. Greenhill, part of Herne Bay, lies to the west, the parishes of Hoath and Chislet are to the east and Sturry parish is to the South.

The village of Herne and the now merged hamlet of Broomfield have both expanded greatly over recent years and between them have a population of over 8,000 people.

History[edit]

The Parish Council was created in May 1996 following a successful campaign by local residents (having previously been part of the unparished area which was formerly Herne Bay Urban District). It is the newest and largest of twenty-six parishes in the City of Canterbury.
