Continuing Research

In addition to maintaining the historical site of Keynsham Abbey, we are keen to ensure more people know more about the location and some of the important people connected to the Abbey. We are particularly keen for residents of Keynsham to have an improved knowledge of Keynsham Abbey and the town's important religious role from the 9th Century to the Abbey's dissolution in c.1539
