Kelston Round Hill; to quote Rhiannon "which begs for pagan significance" what about this...
Kelston could be translated thus; taken from saxon glossary of words. Ton is probably wrong it means enclosure or farm, but dun (hill) would make sense. The K is changed to C (K is not a letter in Saxon) making it Cel = Celsdun or the Hill of the Celts.
It was probably called this by the romans when they occupied Bath..
