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 270 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

Village Litter Pick - Saturday 19th November, news report by Barbara Furber

14 villagers (including 4 young children) met on the Green on Saturday morning to get “geared up” for the Litter Pick. With high viz jackets, picker poles and black bags they set off in various directions to clear Baydon of litter. Part of a car’s cooling system, a large wheel trim and some empty paint tins were some of the more unusual items found amongst the cans, cardboard containers, plastic bottles and other general litter. Numerous sacks of rubbish were collected and were taken to the tip later in the day, leaving the village looking lovely and tidy afterwards. Keep a look out for the date of the next Village Litter Pick in the spring and please do come along and help for an hour or so if you can
