Bradbourne, All Saints

Bradbourne, All Saints

Bradbourne is an ancient church that historically was the mother church in the area encompassing Bradbourne, Brassington, Tissington, Atlow, and Balidon. The church has Saxon origins, with a Norman Tower. The tower has beautifully carved arch doorways. There are later additions to the church and in places stones from the Saxon cross can be found set into the walls. The cross was destroyed during the reformation. It has been rebuilt with as many stones as could be found and stands proudly in the churchyard.

The church is found next to Bradbourne Hall, and has splendid views across typical Dales rolling countryside. The actor Alan Bates, who had a home in the village, is buried with his wife and son in the churchyard. You will see a memorial fountain at the top of the lane to the church. 

Car parking is available at the village hall opposite the church.

The church's summer fete takes place in June each year.
