Bradwell, Derbyshire

Bradwell is a village in the Derbyshire Peak District of England. It lies south of the main body of the Hope Valley, but is usually included among its settlements. A few Roman remains have been found in the village, associated with the nearby Navio fort at Brough-on-Noe, including a Roman bath. Grey Ditch is a medieval earthwork. The village grew again in the eighteenth century around lead mining. As with many Peak District villages, Bradwell has become a settlement for commuters and retirees.
