Raglan is a locality in the Bathurst Region of New South Wales, Australia. It was named after FitzRoy Somerset, 1st Baron Raglan, commander-in-chief of the Allied forces in the Crimean War from 1850 to 1855. It had a population of 1,199 people as of the 2016 census.
St James Anglican Church has bi-monthly services on the first Sunday of the month in odd-numbered months, alternating with St John the Evangelist Church at Peel in the even-numbered months. The Raglan Community Hall remains in operation and is managed by the Raglan Community and Sporting Committee. The Raglan Rural Fire Brigade celebrated its sixtieth anniversary in 2017.
Bathurst Airport is located at Raglan. Mars Petcare opened a $100 million upgrade of their Raglan manufacturing facility in May 2015. The suburb was formerly home to the Bathurst Brick Company factory, which relocated to Raglan in 1977 until its closure in 1998, seven years after being purchased by CSR Limited.
The village was subject to a controversial proposal for a two-storey, 48-room motel, petrol station, convenience store, seven shops and a 111-unit self-storage facility on a disused nursery site in 2014; however, this has not been built.
