During this period, Broughton became part of the parish of Newport Pagnell and was served by the Rectors of Newport.
1952 to date
.
Broughton was removed from the parish of Newport Pagnell and combined with Milton Keynes. This was a ploy to make the stipend of the Rector of Milton Keynes sufficient to run the huge Rectory in Milton Keynes Village. In the event, only one more Rector ever lived in it, and thereafter a new Rectory was built at Broughton to accomodate the Rector of the two parishes. Since 1984 the parishes have been combined with Wavendon and Walton to the south, and the whole forms the Ecumenical Partnership of Walton.
