A few Roman remains have been found in the village, associated with the nearby Navio fort at Brough-on-Noe, including a Roman bath. Grey Ditch is a medieval earthwork. The village grew again in the eighteenth century around lead mining.
As with many Peak District villages, Bradwell has become a settlement for commuters and retirees. The other sources of income are the landmark local cement factory, pubs, B&Bs, an eponymous locally made ice cream, and some subsidised farming. The Bagshaw Cavern show cave is now only open by appointment.
