Join Keynsham & Saltford Local History Society to find out more about your area
Clock Tower 1968 - 2015
The Society was formed in 1965 as a non-profit making voluntary organisation concerned with researching and recording the history of the Keynsham and Saltford area. Since 1965 the Society has amassed a large archive of photographs, documents, maps and transcripts from primary sources and newspaper articles.
Membership of the Society is open to everyone who is interested in local history. Monthly meetings are held at St. Dunstan's Catholic Church Hall, Bristol Road, Keynsham from September to April, normally on the third Monday and commencing at 7.30pm.
We welcome a variety of experienced speakers who give illustrated talks on a wide range of subjects. Topics covered recently have included the Brabazon, the history of Aust Ferry, J S Fry & Sons of Frenchay, and Mills, Coal & Glass of Stanton Drew.
During the summer months visits are arranged to local places of historical interest.
The Society keeps closely in touch with the members of Saltford Brass Mill Trust, who maintain the mill and organise fortnightly open days during the summer. Private parties of 15 people or more can also visit at other times. To find out more about the Brass Mill or to arrange a group tour, visit the website www.brassmill.com
