Keynsham Town in Somerset

Photograph of Keynsham


The Somerset town of Keynsham lies between Bristol and Bath. It currently has a population of about 16,000 and was recorded in the Domesday Book as 'Cainesham' - the home of Saint Keyne. There has been some sort of settlement here since prehistoric times and the area is scattered with Roman remains. It became a medieval market town, after Keynsham Abbey was founded around 1170. It is situated at the junction of confluence of the River Chew and River Avon and was subject to serious flooding before the creation of Chew Valley Lake and river level controls at Keynsham Lock.
