(Formerly Listed as:
West End House)
House, now shops. Mid C17 with late C19 and mid C20
alterations. Colourwashed render with stone dressings, ashlar
copings and gabled pantile roof with south end brick stack.
PLAN: 3-unit plan; originally a domestic range to right with
entrance to the left set next to carriage entry.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys with attic; 4-window range. Ground floor
from left has glazed late C19 shopfront, gated former carriage
entry, C20 glazed entrance doorway and glazed mid C20
shopfront. First floor to right has ovolo-moulded
cross-mullion windows with dripstones: 3 lights to outer bays,
2 lights to centre. First-floor left has C17 dripstoned
opening with C19 cross-mullioned fenestration; plate-glass in
all windows. 2 raking dormers with 3-light late C20 casements

INTERIOR: main doorway leads to mid C17 dog-leg staircase with

HISTORICAL NOTE: the building is believed to be on the site of
the former Hospice of St John (Keynsham Abbey guesthouse). An
early C19 drawing of the hospice by Buckler does not resemble
the present West End House. Notable as one of the most earlier
properties in Keynsham.
