Set in rural Northamptonshire, in the district of Daventry, the village of Badby is a charming stone village featuring ironstone and thatch cottages set alongside the famous bluebell woods. The earliest known recorded reference to the village comes from a Saxon land charter dating from 944AD, which records the village as 'Badden Byrig'. It is recorded in the Domesday Book that the village belonged to the church and was known as 'Badebi'. Indeed history tells us that the land in this area was used by Abbot Godric II to buy protection against the threatening Danes. He leased Badby in 1006 for 100 years to Norman, a great military officer under King Edred. The Danes attacked successfully in 1013 under King Sweyn, who was soon succeeded by his son Canute. In 1016 Norman was killed and in 1017 King Canute executed Edred. Canute later transferred Badby to Norman's brother, Earl Leofric, who had supported Canute and was married to the famous Lady Godiva. Earl Leofric gave the lordship of the manor of Badby and Newnham to the Benedictine Abbey of Evesham. This was ratified by King Canute and the Anglo-Saxons and the Danes began to settle together at last. Visitors today can find a warm welcome at the 17th century Windmill Inn at Badby, offering food, drink and rooms with en-suite.
