The name of the village of Bradfield simply means ‘Broad Field’ and indicates that its origin must have been linked with agriculture in some way.
Bradfield is still a rural settlement about 60 km west of London.
The modern settlement is made up of two communities: Bradfield, the original village site around the mill and River Pang and Southend Bradfield which developed along the ridge forming a direct communication link to the west.
