Bradbourne is a village and civil parish in the Derbyshire Dales district of Derbyshire, England. The village is just outside the Peak District National Park, and is 5 miles north of Ashbourne.

Bradbourne is also one of the 51 Thankful Villages of England, having suffered no losses during World War I. It is the only village in Derbyshire to bear this title. According to the 2001 census the parish had a population of 116.

Bradbourne Hall is a 17th-century mansion house.

Bradbourne Mill to the south of the village is considered to be the oldest surviving watermill in Derbyshire; it was built in 1726 and continued in operation until the 1920s. The three-storey mill had a unique system of twin overshot waterwheels some 12 feet (4 metres) in diameter, which were powered by the Bradbourne Brook. The waterwheels and mill pond were restored, as part of the renovation and conversion of the building for residential use in 2008.[1]

History

Bradbourne was mentioned in the Domesday book as belonging to Henry de Ferrers and being worth thirty shillings.[2]

The village's parish church, All Saints, is the former Bradbourne Priory.
