Brokenborough is a village and civil parish about 1 1⁄2 miles (2.4 km) northwest of Malmesbury, Wiltshire. The course of the Fosse Way Roman road forms the northwest boundary of the parish, and also the county boundary with neighbouring Gloucestershire. The Tetbury Avon, also called the Ingleburn, flows through the parish west of the village. The 2011 Census recorded the parish's population as 190.
The Great Barn at Brokenborough Farm, just south of the village, has 10 bays, nine cruck trusses, two porches and is probably 14th-century. It too is a Grade II* listed building. There was a farm with an even larger barn on a moated site somewhat further south, but it was demolished in the 17th century.
Brokenborough has a pub, the Horse Guards.
