A small, straightforward town to navigate, Bradberton is mostly built around the central road passing through it, with the police station and other public buildings in the central square. Most of the buildings that are not boarded up are completely ruined and littered with dirt and debris. A small chapel can be found in the west, and down the road. The motel is still open to scavengers, even if there isn't much left to scavenge now. To the southeast, the remnants of the Little Nuka Gift Shop can be explored and there is a working terminal on the counter.
Upon entering the town from the south road, there is a reference to the Dark Souls series in the second house on the left. Inside an altar can be found, decorated with or dedicated to the sun and stars. In front of the altar a pile of glowing embers is on the floor with a Chinese officer sword sticking out of it. The Sole Survivor can "kindle" the fire, making it burst into flames upon which stimpaks fall from thin air. Taking the sword makes more stimpaks appear. In the Dark Souls series, bonfires are used to refill player health, much like stimpaks are for.
The following is based on unverified behind the scenes information and has not been confirmed by canon sources.
Bradberton is likely a reference to Hershey, Pennsylvania, a company town built to house the workers and offices of the chocolate-producing Hershey Company. The town is located near to the Hersheypark theme park and Hershey's Chocolate World visitors' center, both consumables-themed amusement parks similar to Nuka-World.
