Little Baldon is near the other "Baldon" villages included in an old rhyme:
Marsh Baldon, Toot Baldon, Baldon on the Green,
Little Baldon, Big Baldon, Baldon-in-between
It is where an RAF Handley Page Hastings crashed in 1965, killing all 41 people aboard. This was the third worst air crash in the United Kingdom up to that time. A memorial plaque in the parish church of St Lawrence at Toot Baldon commemorates the disaster.
