Methodist Church dates back to 1843. In 1843, Keinton - or 'Kington' as it was then called - had a population of about 600 people
in just over 100 dwellings; where the population/dwellings had more than doubled in the previous 30 years. The growth was probably
due to the expansion of the rail network, which enabled the stone from the local quarries to reach wider markets. The quarry industry,
which had been in existence since at least 1698, employed about 40% of the male workers in the village. Keinton was also on the stage-coach
route between London and Truro (via Barnstable), which provided passing trade for the local hostelries.
