Broompark is a village in County Durham. It is situated some 3 miles (4.8 km) west of Durham city. It was once the site of the Broompark Colliery which closed in 1904. The oldest remaining buildings in the village are Broom Farm guesthouse, built in 1711, and Broom Farm West, also built in the early 18th century. Broompark Wood is a reclaimed coal mine and coal storage depot, and also a junction of three former railway lines, which are now used as pathways to Consett, Crook and Bishop Auckland. The area is a popular place for picnics. Fields have been planted with broadleaved trees to increase cover for wildlife. The different habitats support a variety of flora and fauna. There are also ponds edged with native wetland plants. There are two circular walking routes; an easy access Woodland Walk, and the Two Oaks walk which allow visitors to explore the site and enjoy its wildlife including jays, tawny owls and a family of roe deer.
