Bagby is a village and civil parish in the Hambleton district of North Yorkshire, England, 3 miles (5 km) south-east of Thirsk. The parish had a population of 470 according to the 2001 census. The village is a mixture of old and new properties, farms and some specialist furniture makers.
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).
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.
