St Mary the Virgin, Badby

The 14th century building, with a fine 15th century clerestory, dominates a knoll at the top of the village, which has a population of 650. 

The parish is one of five comprising the Knightley Parishes, sharing one Rector, who with an active lay band maintains a varying schedule of services.   Please check the Services and Events page and especially check the One-off Events section.  We welcome everyone to our services.
