Bromley Cross is a suburb of the unparished area of South Turton in the Metropolitan Borough of Bolton, Greater Manchester, England. Historically part of Lancashire, it lies on the southern edge of the West Pennine Moors.
The area gets its name from an ancient cross, which has long since gone. It was originally named Kershaw's Cross after a tenant farmer who lived in the neighbourhood. His landlord, Bromley (or Bromiley) owned land in Bradshaw and Harwood. It was from this family that the name Bromley Cross was taken.
Bromley Cross is a residential area. The village grew in the 19th century in association with many factories and bleachworks, which used water power obtained from the Eagley Brook and it's tributaries.
In the northern area of Bromley Cross, you will find the "Last Drop Village." This is a collection of farmhouses and farmbuildings which were restored in the 1960's into a pub, resteraunt, bistro, craft shops, hotel and conference centre.Bromley Cross railway station
