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 280 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

To keep up to date on Baydon's village news and events, please do revisit our village website, plus also see the latest edition of our own local bi-monthly publication (Scene in Baydon)

Village Bonfire & Fireworks

Unfortunately following on from such a brilliant display we have received a message from the Fireworks team:
" A big thank you to the most inconsiderate person or people who selfishly put a conifer tree on the bonfire site on Monday, after it had been cleared upon Sunday!
If anyone should know who it was, could they please inform someone from the Firework Team. Thank you.
"

It was still a great display, watched by over 700 local villagers and friends.

2018 Firework display

A very big THANK YOU to Jim and Trevor and Everybody involved in another fantastic Firework Display.
