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).

Results of Wiltshire Highways speed survey on Ermin Street near the chicanes issued

The results of a Metrocount that was in place from 10th to 17th November 2014 on Ermin Street, near the location of the chicane traffic calming have been issued by Wiltshire Highways. They are really good news and show that the chicanes are working and have reduced the general speed of traffic in that area. The 85th percentile, being the speed at which 85% of the passing vehicles are below was 39.8 mph which is a large reduction from the previous main Metrocounts in that location over the last 4.5 years when both in April 2012 and May 2010 this speed was around 44.5 mph. However we cannot be complacent about these results as the maximum speed recorded was a staggering 73.6 mph and the average speed of the 15,774 vehicles was 34 mph. Further traffic calming measures within the village continue to be explored. Metrocount speed surveys have also recently taken place in Manor Lane and on Ermin Street near the shop, but the results have not yet been made available
