About the Village

Yatton Keynell lies 97 miles from Hyde Park Corner, London, although our slightly famous milestone puts it somewhat differently.

Mentioned in the Domesday book, Sir William Keynell gave the village its modern name in the 13th Century when he built St. Margaret’s Church, whilst John Aubrey Close takes its name from the antiquary and writer known for his work on Stonehenge and Avebury, locations only marginally more visitworthy than Yatton Keynell itself.

Market Cross

The Market Cross, Yatton Keynell

We’re rightly proud of our school, pub, Post Office and Market Cross, the latter being the only example to be built in Wiltshire for centuries. This is not, though, the extent of our amenities, local groups and businesses, all of which make Yatton Keynell a sought-after location on the edge of the Cotswolds.

Whether you’re planning a visit, looking to relocate or simply searching for references to our tiny neighbour Tiddleywink; welcome to our website and to our village. We hope you enjoy your stay.
