The picturesque village of Bradwell lies just a few miles from Castleton, in the beautiful Hope Valley. The village lies at the meeting of the Dark Peak (gritstone) and White Peak (limestone) regions, and limestone has been mined here since Roman times. The site of the Eden Caravan site is reputed to be the spot where a King of Mercia died in Saxon times.

Most of the buildings are 19th century, though a few older remain, including the White Hart Inn (1676). The church of St Barnabas the Apostle is late Victorian, and there are some lovely cottages running here and there up The Hills. Just outside Bradwell, the high ridges of Bradwell Edge are popular with hang gliders and paragliders, and the views are superb.
