Somerford Keynes is a quiet,small village 4 miles from the Roman town of Cirencester (Corinium).
Cirencester is the capital of the Cotswolds. It is a market town, which lies on the lower dip-slopes of the Cotswold Hills. There are many Roman remains including several Roman villas near the villages of Chedworth and Withington. The amphitheatre still exists in the Querns area to the SW of the town.
