Parish History

BRADBORNE (All Saints), a parish, partly in the hundred of Appletree, but chiefly in that of Wirksworth, S. division of the county of Derby, 5 miles (N. N. E.) from Ashbourn; comprising the township of Aldwark, the chapelries of Atlow, Ballidon, and Brassington, and the hamlet of Lea-Hall. At Brassington and Atlow are separate incumbencies, and at Ballidon a chapel of ease. [1]

Bradbourne is also one of England's 'Thankful villages' - eighteen conscripts were sent to fight in the Great War and all returned home safely.
