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 265 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

Baydon Young People’s Association (BYPA) - Hoping to get a Youth Group running

Baydon’s BYPA Hall in Manor Lane has recently been dramatically refurbished and offers a great venue for the young people of Baydon and the surrounding areas to meet. We are hoping to get a Youth Group up and running during term time, for children between the ages of 8 and 11 year old one evening a week or possibly a Saturday morning. A youth worker will organise and lead the youth group, but we will also need support from the parents to enable the youth group to function. We would like to know your thoughts and ideas, so we have created a questionnaire available by clicking here which we would ask you to complete and then either return to St Nicolas School reception, the Baydon Post Office and Stores, or scan and email back to bypa@baydon.org   We really look forward to hearing from you! Many thanks, The BYPA Committee
