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

2015 Great Baydon Bake Off a great success

The Great Baydon Bake Off team would like to thank everyone who turned out on Saturday 7th March to support us. We smashed last year's total, and raised an amazing £800 for Action Duchenne! The standard of baking was exceptional, and we were touched by the hard work all 47 entrants put into their bakes. The judges certainly had a hard time (if you can call it that when you are eating cake!), deciding on the winners. They just about managed it, and the placings were as follows:-

Child (with parent) - 1st Emma Cook, 2nd Layla Hancock and 3rd George Oliphant 

Under 16s - 1st Olivia Clark, 2nd  Lucy Bartlett and 3rd Charlie Hallsworth

Adults - 1st Mary Oliphant, 2nd Janet Bennett and 3rd Vidar Noad


Congratulations to all! We had generous sponsorship from many local businesses, but would particularly like to thank Debbie from Baydon Stores, and Julie from The Red Lion for their ongoing support. For a full write up plus photos see next month's Scene in Baydon. The Great Baydon Bake Off will return next year!

Results of Highways speed survey on Ermin Street (Updated 1st March 2015)

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. Update :- Metrocount speed surveys have also taken place in Manor Lane and on Ermin Street near the shop, and these results will be published here soon
