St Mary the Virgin
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.
During the period of the initial Coronavirus Covid-19 pandemic, the church has had long periods of being totally closed. From 19 July 2021, the church was open again everyday between 10am and 4pm. We also had to close it from 29 January 2022 until 6 April 2022 while major restoration work was carried out to the roofs and higher masonry. Do come and visit for quiet contemplation, prayer and exploring the heritage and history of the building over its 600 years. There is a free Quick Guide leaflet and a £3 full History as well as illustrative boards of the Pew Platform and Roof Repair Projects.
