Badbury is a hamlet of the civil parish of Chiseldon in Wiltshire.

There is evidence that in 955 King Eadred granted Badbury, then containing twenty-five hides, to Saint Dunstan, Abbot of Glastonbury Abbey. The manor of Badbury was held by the Abbey at the time of the Domesday book, when it was counted as twenty hides.[1]
