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

A new bicycle club in Baydon! - Anyone up for taking part in an informal cycle club?

Enjoy riding your bike? Want to get or keep fit by regular local cycling. This is what we’re thinking of:- a regular ride of about 20 miles (probably Thursday evenings), we will end up at the Red Lion Pub for a post ride drink. Ad hoc on road and off road rides as desired. We will go whatever the weather. Hopefully we can organise rides for different levels of ability. We will stay together and support each other so no one is left behind. The first ride was on Thursday (21st August) and this is hoped to become a regular Thursday evening event, departing the Red Lion at 6.15pm, with rides from 10 to 20 miles. Please click here for full details

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
