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)

Sir Isaac Newton – Recent talk given raising funds for the church

A talk was given by Denys Cook on Friday 10th November about Sir Isaac Newton in the School Hall that was attended by 50 people from Baydon and surrounding villages and raised over £429. We all enjoyed this amusing and very informative evening on Sir Isaac’s connection with Baydon. Denys had done a huge amount of research to find the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. He told us how Sir Isaac was ranked second on a list of people who had been the most influential in history and was rated as the greatest scientist of all time. Also, he read us articles written in the 1892 about the house Sir Isaac had lived in in Baydon, as well as another written in 1927 in the same vein, these both turned out to be myths. Denys kept us in suspense as to the truth and it turned out Sir Isaac did own Finches Farm House with 135 acres, but he never even visited Baydon and had bought the property to leave to relatives! There were craft stalls, a raffle and Cheese, Wine and socialising which was thoroughly enjoyed too - Kate Buckingham

Baydon enjoys another great bonfire and firework night Updated

After a wet start to the day we were very lucky with almost perfect conditions for our bonfire and fireworks display. We had 821 people through the gate. We would like to thank everyone involved in this annual event, which seems to get better every year. Update Firstly apologies for the delay in this update, but due to work commitments The Fireworks Group have only recently met. After another successful year we have a total of £687.37 carried forward to next years fireworks display. Once again thank you, and a big thank you for your continued support - Trevor Dominy on behalf of the Fireworks Group
