Ashton Keynes is a village and civil parish in Wiltshire, England which borders with Gloucestershire, south of Cirencester north of Cricklade. According to the 2011 census the parish had a usual resident population of 1,400 (previously, the 2001 census counted a slightly higher population of 1,420). The village lies within the Cotswold Water Park and is the only settlement substantially on both sides of the River Thames, which has many channels here, centred from its source (Thames Head). In the late 1980s a large Romano-British settlement was excavated on the edge of the village, in advance of extensive gravel extraction.
