St John the Baptist, Keynsham, Somerset

I spent an interesting couple of hours in Keynsham photographing the churches there. This is the parish church, a long and relatively low spreading church, largely C15 but with an odd tower of 1634, built after the previous tower collapsed two years earlier during "tempestuous weather...with hideous clapps of thunder". A closer look reveals the chancel is largely C13.
