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

Beating the Bounds of Baydon - Bank Holiday Monday 4th May

14 people and 2 dogs set off from outside the shop on Bank Holiday Monday to walk the 15 mile village boundary. The first leg took just 2 hours after which the group stopped for lunch off the main road near the motorway bridge east of the village. Four walkers left for home at this point and three more and another dog joined the group. The second leg was completed in warm clement weather taking just 2½ hours. Beating the Bounds is an ancient tradition, which, in the past, was used to teach youngsters their village boundary. The tradition was reinstated in Baydon in the year 2000 (by Barbara Furber)
