Keynsham Abbey (Remains)
Keynsham Abbey (Remains)
Built about 1166 this was an Augustine Abbey set in a beautiful location near the river Chew and Avon. It was dissolved by Henry VIII in 1535. Apparently if Keynsham did not also have a Parish Church, it may have been spared. The Keynsham by-pass goes straight through the rest of the remains (A4).These remains are in the park and are fenced off from the public. The picture was taken during a special visit.
