History

Dating back to Roman Times, Keinton Mandeville and its environs is steeped in history. Lakeview even plays host to our very own Roman ruin which will be protected in perpetuity for future generations. Although the quarry is now disused commercially, the village still features reminders of its industrial past, as it was once known for its local Blue Lias stone. From cider mills and water mills, Keinton Mandeville was a thriving yet quaint village.
