BRADFORD DALE AND THE
The walk by the River Bradford from Middleton-by-Youlgreave to Alport, where it meets the River Lathkill, is one of the finest in the Peak National Park. Like the Lathkill the river flows entirely through limestone country and is famous for the purity of its water.
In the sunlight the six pools of crystal clear water at the upper end of Bradford Dale, reflect the the mature trees lining the sides of the dale. A spot where visitors like to spend time gazing into the clear waters of the fish pools. Lower down the dale below Youlgreave three adjacent bridges cross river, the first carries a minor road, the others are a pack-horse bridge and an even older clapper bridge.
