All Saints, Bradbourne,Derbyshire is essentially Norman with later additions but contains fragments of Saxon work in the north side of the nave. The church was given to Dunstable Priory in 1205, when four monks were sent to serve it and its three chapelries at Tissington, Brassington and Ballidon, a system that continued for more than 300 years until the dissolution and then under the protestant Church of England until Tissingtion and Brassington became separate parishes around 1860. These days the parish of Bradbourne and Ballidon shares a team vicar with Brassington.

The large unbuttressed tower is Norman and the carving of this south doorway is a rich example of late Norman sculpture.
