Cllr Charles Gerrish- a Conservative member for Keynsham North – told the Virtual Museum that the need for a museum  in the town had long been a topic of discussion.

‘However,’ he said, ‘the issue of on-going funding to make it viable has always been the dilemma. The positive news is that, as part of the new town centre development, the library/one-stop-shop will be used to display some of Keynsham’s artifacts – including the (Roman) villa floor that it is proposed will be sunk into the new floor and then covered with transparent material to ensure visability.
