Bradfield Parish is probably the largest civil parish in England covering 56 square miles. It includes many villages and hamlets all with their own historical interest linked by over 100 miles of public footpaths.

The Boundary Walk, 49.5 miles in total (46 miles if taking the alternative route at Oughtibridge or 55 miles if taking in the section to Swains Head) is unique, and takes in some of the most beautiful countryside in England ranging from fertile valleys in the south and east to open moorland in the north and west.
