- Simply follow the B6276 to Middleton.
Brough has always consisted of two distinct settlements: Market Brough to the north and Church Brough, clustered to the south round a green by the church and castle. The division was emphasised in 1977 by the building of the A66 flyover. Brough offers pubs, accommodation, fish and chips and a late-night shop. The farm by the castle has an ice cream parlour.
