Great Boughton is a parish that comprises the villages of Boughton Heath, Caldy Valley, Vicars Cross and a section of Huntington. Attractions include the Sandy Lane Aqua Park with ferry to Meadows, Caldy Valley Nature Reserve and Boughton Hall Cricket Club. Great Boughton came into the news when a controversial development at the disused Saighton Camp caused the building of a new roundabout. The roundabout now creates delays especially on the A41 where tailbacks frequently reach 2 miles.
