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 600, 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 shop / post office (Baydon Village Stores) and the village pub (The Red Lion).
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 with Baydon 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).

Metal Detecting Weekend
- 28th & 29th September

to help raise money to assist
in the repair to our church?

A number of farmers in and around Baydon have kindly given us permission to conduct metal detecting over 28th & 29th September.
Two metal detecting clubs will be visiting us over that weekend and we expect around 100 detectorists to hunt for artefacts around the village. Local detectorists are welcome to join in on the day but must be members of a club or metal detecting society, as they have to be covered for insurance purposes.
If anything of value is found it is shared 50/50 with the owner of the land.
Entry for detecting: 1 day £15 or 2 days £25

Camping has been organised and is available at £5 per pitch - Saturday night only.

Baydon Post Office Stores is kindly remaining open on Saturday pm and Sunday pm to serve soft drinks, cakes etc. A raffle is being organised - a donation of prizes would be most welcome.
ALL money raised is being donated to assist with the St Nicholas Church Building fund.

We could do with some volunteers on the two days to help in administration and pointing the way to detectorists. So if you have an hour or so free to give a hand , please call me:
Tom McGowran on 07725569133.
