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

Proms on the Green concert given by the Aldbourne Band

In a quintessentially English setting on the village green, surrounded by thatched cottages, a pub and the village church, a large audience enjoyed this year’s traditional Proms on the Green concert given by the Aldbourne Band. MD David Johnson delighted the crowd with music ranging from Verdi’s Force of Destiny, a Mozart Horn Concerto, Benedictus from Carl Jenkins’ War Requiem, to music from the Western Silverado, Putting on the Ritz and a Glen Miller selection. A wonderful addition to this year’s prom was the superb young soprano Tilly Wale who gave a masterful performance of “I dreamed a dream” from Les Miserables accompanied by the band, and later in the concert led the crowds in the traditional singing of Rule Britannia and Land of Hope and Glory.

Baydon Red Lion Pub  - Announcement from Julie Wyatt, the current owner

As the current owner of the Red Lion I feel it necessary to advise those who have an interest in the future of the Red Lion Pub that the purchase price stated in the “Business Plan” of the Save Baydon Lion campaign has not been discussed with me and is not in any sense agreed. I have not, nor will I, agree to sell the Red Lion for the sum stated. I have had expressions of interest and requests for information from a number of parties regarding the building and land that comprise the Red Lion. The “Save the Lion” campaign only has until the 7th October 2017 after which date if an acceptable offer has not been received from the “Save the Baydon Lion” campaign, I will actively pursue discussions with other interested parties. If the “Save the Baydon Lion” is to succeed, and I do wish it well, then it is important that that those supporting the campaign know that the value stated in the “Business Plan” is not going to be accepted. Regards, Julie Wyatt (Owner of Red Lion)
