Brogborough is a village and civil parish in the Central Bedfordshire district of Bedfordshire, England, by junction 13 of the M1 motorway. According to the 2001, census it had a population of 343, reducing to 302 at the 2011 Census. The village is about 8 miles (13 km) east of Milton Keynes in Buckinghamshire.
Home to the Brogborough Windsurfing Club, the 220-acre (0.89 km2) lake is solely dedicated to Windsurfing and Stand up paddle surfing.
There is a proposal to create a new branch of the Grand Union Canal between Milton Keynes and Bedford. The terrain is broadly favourable for most of the route, but Brogborough Hill creates a formidable obstacle.
Options being considered include a tunnel under the hill, or a Falkirk Wheel or the Brogborough Whirl plan to go over it.
