Bradbourne is also one of the 51 Thankful Villages of England, having suffered no losses during World War I. Even more impressively, they are one of 15 Doubly Thankful Villages because they again didn't lose any servicemen in World War II. It is the only village in Derbyshire to bear this title. According to the 2001 census the parish had a population of 116, increasing marginally to 117 at the 2011 Census.
Bradbourne Hall is a 17th-century mansion house.
Bradbourne Mill to the south of the village is considered to be the oldest surviving watermill in Derbyshire; it was built in 1726 and continued in operation until the 1920s. The three-story mill had a unique system of twin overshot waterwheels some 12 feet (4 meters) in diameter, which were powered by the Bradbourne Brook. The waterwheels and mill pond were restored, as part of the renovation and conversion of the building for residential use in 2008.
