History

The name Bagby comes from an Old Norse personal name Baggi + Old Norse býr, meaning "settlement" or "farmstead". Bagby is recorded in the Domesday Book as Bagebi/Baghebi. (The name is shared with the village of Bigby, Lincolnshire, and the hamlet of Begbie, near Haddington, East Lothian).

Religion

The parish church is dedicated to St Mary. Located in Church Lane, it is a Grade II Listed Building designed by Edward Buckton Lamb and built in 1862.

Airfield

Bagby Airfield is situated on the southern edge of the village. The privately owned airfield is used by light aircraft and helicopters but has been the subject of various planning control issues relating to expansion, noise nuisance and increased air traffic.
