Welcome to the Baydon Village Website

 

The peaceful village of Baydon is found on the old Roman Road of Ermin Street that dips and sweeps through undulating countryside, rising to over 760 feet above sea level at Baydon. The total population of Baydon is approximately 560, including those from outlying farms, and encompasses about 280 houses

St Nicholas Church is located in the centre of the village, and nearby are the village pub (The Red Lion), and the village shop / post office (Baydon Village Stores). The primary school (Baydon St. Nicholas C. of E. School) is situated next to the church and is very well regarded, attracting children from the surrounding villages

Raising Money for the Alzheimer's Society - Baydon's Jo Cooling

In memory of my Mum, who suffered with Alzheimer's for 7 years before her death in 2010, I am raising money this year for the Alzheimer's Society. This will culminate in a high altitude trek in Peru in September, ending at Machu Picchu. As well as raising money through sponsorship for the trek, I will be doing various fund raising events. My company have very kindly sponsored me enough to cover the cost of the trip, so all money raised will go straight to the Alzheimer's Society. Finally if you would like to sponsor me for the trek, I have a JustGiving page being :
