Church of England Diocese of Peterborough Badby

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.   

The church is usually open every day 9am to 5pm.  Come and see the refurbishment completed in May 2018. Long distance paths - Knightley Way and Nene Way both start from the village.

Tuition with tied clappers for initial bell control usually starts at 7pm but in any case phone 01327 871806 to check before travelling! Normal practice starts at 7.30pm. Attendance averages 13. We have recently had a lot of improvers from local towers and our special methods (Stedman Doubles and Cambridge Surprise Minor) have become rather rare events- but it all depends who comes along! Review and refreshments afterwards at the Maltsters Arms.
