Bradwell is set in North Derbyshire in the Peak District National Park. The local area was once mined for lead on the moors above Bradwell. South of the village is Bagshaw Cavern, a fine collection of caves open to the public that can be reached through an old lead mine.

In Roman times the lead mining settlements were controlled and protected by the garrison at Anavio (Brough) just north of the present village. Roman lead ingots were sent along the Derwent and Trent to Brough on Humber to be exported all over the Empire. Early Christians from Italy and France were among those exiled to the lead mines.

Roman coin hoards have been found locally and The New Bath Inn marks the site of a medicinal spring, originally Roman but revived in Georgian times.

Before England was unified, Bradwell was in border country between Northumbria and Mercia, and in the 5th and 6th century the Grey Ditch was built as a defensive wall from Mam Tor to Shatton Edge. It is still visible on the northern edge of the village.
