Bradbury and the Isle Civil Parish

Bradbury and the Isle Civil Parish in the south of County Durham is located between Sedgefield and Newton Aycliffe. The village of Bradbury is the largest settlement in the parish. 'The Isles' is an area in the parish located by the River Skerne. Historically, the river has been prone to flooding here; when flooded a number of small islands of land remain above the floodwaters. These include Great Isle and Little Isle, on which stand Great Isle farm and the hamlet of Little Isle, respectively. Historically, Bradley and surrounding area were a township in the ancient parish of Sedgefield. Much of the marshland here was drained during the 19th century for farming. The population of the civil parish was 133 at the time of the 2011 Census.
