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

During this period Wanborough Surgery will remain open with a Nurse on duty and you will still be able to collect medication. A Doctor will be available at Ramsbury Surgery for medical advice or an appointment. Thank you for your cooperation over the coming months - Alison Harrod, Practice Manager


Baydon Church and School Fete 2015 - A big thank you to everyone

We would like to thank everyone who attended, helped and donated items for the Baydon Church and School Fete on Saturday 13th June.

Everyone seemed to enjoy the Fete being held in the Paddock again this year. The weather which was cool and cloudy with a few spots of rain, did not dampen anyone's spirits and it was still a lovely afternoon. Once again a very big thank you to you all - Pauline & Tony Topp
