Kings and Commoners in Keynsham

Kings and Commoners in Keynsham

Our new walk for Keynsham’s Heritage Open Days 9-11 September – and it’s free!

People have lived and worked and played and prayed in Keynsham for over 2,000 years. One of the greatest monasteries of medieval England stood here, and one of the largest villas in Roman Britain. And the evidence is all around, including on the high street – you just have to know where to look.

Keynsham: visited by Kings, ruled by commoners, spelled by Horace Batcheor and hymned by the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band.

Starting at St John’s church our new walk explores some fascinating stories and people including three ghosts – and the King Who Never Was.
