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)

Christmas Shoebox Appeal

Very soon a leaflet will be dropped through our letterboxes, giving all the information about this years appeal. What to put in and how to pack the Shoebox, and how to make a small donation to help with transport costs. After creating the Shoebox please deliver it to me, at 9 Downsmead; to Debbie in the shop, or to the School Administrator office by 1st November. This will allow me time to collect and deliver them to Grove by 6th November.
God bless you and your family and thank you for your support.
