Keynsham Town Information

Use the links on the left to find information and images for the towns and villages throughout Bristol...

Home since the 1930s of Cadbury’s chocolates, this ancient town lies at the confluence of the rivers Avon and Chew and has long been associated with water-powered mills that once filled the region.

One of them, Albert Mill, is the only dyewood mill still in working order.

Operated by two huge, 18ft waterwheels, it supplied wood dyes to textile and local glove-making companies.

Keynsham’s 13th century parish church is noted for its ornate, pinnacled tower but the oldest building in these parts is a large and impressive Roman villa.

The Avon Valley Country Park is nearby.
