Church of England Diocese of Peterborough Badby

Opening

The church is usually open every day around 10am till 4pm or earlier in the winter. In the aftermath of the coronavirus, this is presently reduced to Sundays and Wednesdays.

Beware that the main door is old and heavy and is hung so that it slams itself closed, so please take care to steady it. 

Please close the outer netted door to keep birds from getting into the church or nesting in the porch.

HIRED COACH or CAR

Use Sat Nav setting NN11 3AR.  There is very little parking near the church and it is best to park in or off Main Street. Please park so as to allow room for emergency vehicles and delivery lorries to get past. Access for coaches larger than midi-coaches is practically impossible and passengers should be asked to walk from Main Street either via Vicarage Hill or Church Hill.

BIKE

Local roads are undulating, narrow, poorly maintained and cycle paths, other than in Daventry town are non-existent. (Despite government policy!).  Motor bikes are prone to travel too fast on the A361, which has a maximum limit of 50MPH from Daventry to Banbury. Please take care for your own safety and that of other road users.
