About Us


Badby and District Photo Club has been an established part of the community for over 30 years. Originally meeting at Badby Village Hall, we have moved with the times and now operate online for the forseeable future. A zoom meeting is scheduled for 7.30 on the third Wednesday of every month, and all are welcome to share the event.

The beautiful Northamptonshire village of Badby, edged by the renowned Badby Woods, known for their abundant springtime display of bluebells, surprisingly was not the inspiration for the birth of a camera club. It was in fact three village neighbours in Park Close; Dennis Baldwin, Reg Ireland and Ted Pacey with their shared love of photography who were the catalyst for the club’s creation. In 1981 Dennis put on a photographic slide show for local residents entitled “Our Village”. The resulting enthusiasm led to the formation of the “Badby and District Photographic Society”. Very soon the society became well-respected and recognised within the photographic circles of Northamptonshire and has remained so ever since.

In 2001 the name was changed to reflect the spirit of the new millennium which has developed into an online presence

The club is open to anyone who enjoys photography and image making. If you have an interest in photography at any level, you will be made most welcome at Badby and District Photo Club.

Time of Meetings

Meetings begin at 7.30 p.m. via zoom and normally finish at 9.30 p.m. A one off payment of £10 ensures access to the meetings for the year and this will contribute to guest speakers from time to time with a small extra making up the difference, if any.
