This is the footbridge shown in ST6668 : Port Avon Marina, Keynsham, carrying the Monarch's Way and the River Avon Trail across the entrance to the marina (left) from the river just upstream from Keynsham Lock. A swan is considering nesting down on the river bank.

ST6668 : River Avon above Keynsham Weir by Derek Harper
A rather larger sign has appeared since ST6668 : River Avon above Keynsham Lock was taken, indicating the direction boats would be advised to take to avoid going down ST6668 : Keynsham Weir. This view is from the Monarch's Way as it follows a narrow bank between the river and ST6668 : Port Avon Marina.

ST6668 : Keynsham Weir by Rick Crowley
The River Avon was re-routed here after the disastrous 1968 floods which destroyed many of the bridges in the area. The Avon now comes over the weir, and straight past the rear of the Lock Keeper Pub which in those days was called the White Hart. The old alternative route past the mill has been cut off, and the river Chew now joins the Avon lower down under the new concrete bridge which replaced the old County Bridge.

ST6568 : Old Road in Keynsham by Rick Crowley
This was the main access to Keynsham from the north before the floods of 1968. The Lock Keeper pub in those days was called the White Hart, and the concrete extension with a black door did not block the route! See LinkExternal link In fact the main door to the White Hart was right onto the A4175. The road now leads into the large pub car park and riverside gardens.

Looking upstream from the old road bridge leading to ST6568 : The Lock Keeper at Keynsham, and to the Lock-keeper's Cottage which appears in both photos. See also ST6568 : Old Road in Keynsham which describes the changes here. This is just above the lock (about 100 metres behind the camera and beyond the new road bridge).

=================================================

The tidal weir on the Bristol Avon is a few hundred yards below Brislington Bridge, about 5 miles downstream from here but the effect of the tide is frequently felt at Hanham Lock and sometimes as far as Keynsham Lock.

ST6569 : Keynsham Lock by Linda Bailey
This is the point at which the River Avon becomes tidal. The water levels in the river were very high today perhaps only 2ft difference from above the lock to below the lock. The lock was built at the beginning of the 18th Century.
