About Baginton

Baginton is a village and civil parish in the Warwick district of Warwickshire, England, and has a common border with the City of Coventry / West Midlands county.[1] With a population of 801 (2001 Census), Baginton village is 4 miles (6.5 km) south of central Coventry, 4.5 miles (7 km) northeast of Kenilworth (its post town) and 7 miles (11.25 km) north of Leamington Spa. The population had reduced slightly to 755 at the 2011 Census.[2] The Lucy Price playing field is situated centrally in the village.

Coventry Airport (built 1936), the Lunt Roman Fort and the ancient "Baginton oak" tree are within the village, whilst the Midland Air Museum is just outside Baginton.

The road from Baginton to southern Coventry (the city's Finham district) passes over the River Sowe near an old mill, which now is inhabited by a restaurant and hotel called The Old Mill.

Baginton is often misspelt/mispronounced as 'Bagington'.

The Domesday Book of 1086 records that in the 11th century, Baginton consisted of 15 households and a mill.

In December 2019, Roman and Anglo-Saxon artefacts, including pottery, jugs, and jewellery, were unearthed from burial grounds by archaeologists led by Nigel Page. The team of researchers believed that two of the graves belonged to a "high-status" rank officer and a Roman girl aged 6-12 years old. Findings from the Roman cremation burial site of a young girl included four brooches, a ring with an image of a cicada and a hairpin.
