Batheaston Welcome

Welcome to the rural Village of Batheaston (rated R1) situated just 3 miles from Bath City centre. The village is surrounded on the West, North and East by the Green Belt and Area of Outstanding Beauty (ANOB), and on the south by the River Avon and the Green Belt.

The 2009 electoral Roll shows that there are 1097 residences with 2116 electors plus some 500 children under 18 years of age.

The coach road - the A4 - from Bristol, through Bath, to London used to run through the village - following the river line - until a Bypass was opened in 1997, costing some £75 millions.

The Parish of Batheaston traces its roots back to before the Domesday Book and has many listed buildings and a Conservation Area.

Within the Parish of Batheaston lies the 3 hills of Solsbury, Charmydown and Bannnerdown Common. Bath has “assumed” these 3 hills so that it can claim to have 7 hills - just like Rome, but they ‘belong’ to Batheaston.

There are some 21 kms. of Footpaths throughout the Parish, much loved by ramblers and visitors.

In the following pages you will find all the latest information from the Batheaton Parish Council and details of the many local organisations.
