The River Bradford is a river in the Peak District National Park in Derbyshire. Its source is near Middleton-by-Youlgrave and after passing below Youlgreave it joins the River Lathkill at Alport. Less than 2 miles in length, its waters are very clear due to the limestone rock over which it flows, and its width has been enhanced by a number of weirs which also encourage white-throated dippers to breed in the pounds created. The valley is known as Bradford Dale, and the Limestone Way passes through it.[1]
