a thousand years in the making
Welcome to Badsworth
Welcome to Badsworth. 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. Already established before 1086 when the Domesday Book was written, Badsworth is 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. More about the history of Badsworth
Badsworth is more than just a village lost in time, There is a dedicated group of volunteers that bring energy and life to the Village. Visit the What's On page and come along to one of the many events and activities. Why not join one of the community groups and help to keep Badsworth a thriving village into the future .
The situation regarding Coronavirus is constantly changing. The VPC is putting in place measures to support and provide reassurance to Badsworth residents. Please look out for updates on lamp posts and notice boards around the village.
Many local events have been either postponed or cancelled. Please contact the organiser for the latest information on any published activity or meeting.
Keeping Badsworth Residents Safe
We have had a great response for volunteers and thank you to everyone who has replied so far. Over 35 households replied and we have over 50 individual people in the team. If people still want to volunteer or put their names forward we'll create a "reserve" list in case we get a lot of enquiries via the helpline or in case the situation goes on longer term and we need to give people a break.
In the meantime please continue to check on nearby neighbours and friends and ensure we're all helping each other out where we can. For more information complete the contact form.

Household Waste Collections
There is currently some disruption to bin collections in Badsworth. The council is aware of this and has advised to continue to put household and recycling bins out as normal. They will be emptied but not always on the allocated day.
Garden waste will not be collected at the moment. This is due to the temporary closure of the Council's recycling centres
