Bradford Dale is a valley located below to Youlgreave, Derbyshire.

The valley was created by the 4 mile long River Bradford, whose source is on Gratton Moor, after passing below Youlgreave it joins the River Lathkill at Alport.

The waters of the river are very clear as they flow over the limestone rock. A number of weirs were built to utilise the river, but today white-throated dippers breed in the ponds created.

The river is owned and managed by the Haddon Estate and is home to brown trout and white-clawed crayfish.
