Bradfield

Bradfield is a village in the borough of Sheffield, England and is situated in the Peak District. It is divided into two settlements, High Bradfield atop a hill and Low Bradfield in the valley of the River Loxley.

Bradfield is the largest parish in England, extending from the Ladybower Reservoir on Yorkshireís border with Derbyshire to the Sheffield suburb of Stannington.

High Bradfield possesses a dramatic Gothic revival church, and a Norman castle motte. Low Bradfield is less historic, having been largely destroyed in the Great Sheffield flood of the 1850s.
