Ashton Keynes

Ashton Keynes in Wiltshire has the infant River Thames running beside the entire length of the main street and the houses on this street are all reached by crossing small footbridges. Ashton Keynes is located near the Cotswold Water Park so if you are in the area, why not pay Ashton Keynes a visit.

It is in the heart of the Cotswold Water Park, so Ashton Keynes is surrounded with lakes where various water sports take place.

For centuries a settlement has stood on this beautiful part of the Cotswolds. The village was mentioned in the Doomsday Book of 1086 when it was called Essintone. For over 800 years the village had several name changes, until around 120 years ago when it was named after the Keynes family, who owned most of the land in the 13th-century.

Ashton Keynes can be found a few miles from Cirencester, Somerford Keynes and South Cerney.
