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 275 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
