Broughton Poggs is now a small village in the civil parish of Filkins and Broughton Poggs in the district of West Oxfordshire in Oxfordshire, England. Broughton Poggs is 3 miles (5 km) southwest of Carterton.

Broughton Poggs was an ancient parish and became a civil parish in 1866. The parish included a detached part, Great Lemhill Farm, which was geographically in Gloucestershire. The farm was transferred to Gloucestershire by the Counties (Detached Parts) Act 1844, but remained in the parish until 1886, when it was transferred to the civil parish of Lechlade. The parish was within Witney Rural District. In 1954 the civil parish was merged with the parish of Filkins to form the civil parish of Filkins and Broughton Poggs, part of West Oxfordshire since 1974.
