a thousand years in the making
Welcome to Badsworth. Already established before 1086 when the Domesday Book was written, Badsworth was listed as Badesuurde meaning Bades or Baedi's enclosure. This seems to indicate an Anglo Saxon settlement with open fields around a nucleus of houses and it is believed, a wooden Anglo Saxon church. The Anglo Saxons set up many "springline" villages which offered an assured good quality water supply from natural local springs and Badsworth is one such village. More about the history of Badsworth
