Solid end to story of Keynsham
For those who do not know the town of Keynsham, the prospect of a sixth book detailing its history might seem a little over the top.
But according to its author, Michael Fitter, such assumptions “reveal the tragedy of Keynsham” and its stereotype as “the West’s version of Milton Keynes”, between Bristol and Bath.
In fact, Keynsham has an illustrious history dating back to Roman times, with a medieval abbey to rival any other in the West.
“Most people think of it as a modern Milton Keynes, but that’s only because 85 per cent of the old stone buildings have been swept away for modern development,” said Mr Fitter.

His sixth book, entitled Old Keynsham in Stone, is published in limited edition and is available on Saturday from the Victorian Methodist Church in the High Street.
The 84-year-old author has written books about Keynsham’s ancient history, medieval times, Tudor period and the town during and after the war.
His sixth book outlines Keynsham’s foundations – the stone buildings, quarries, mines and wells – and will be the last.
