Keevil is a village and civil parish in Wiltshire, England. The parish population has varied little since 1801.

After the Second World War the barracks of RAF Keevil were used as a temporary home for Polish refugees. Today the small Ministry of Defence airfield at RAF Keevil is used for gliding at weekends.

The village has two Grade I listed buildings: Keevil Manor House circa 1580[2] and a house known as Talboys, 14th century extended 1876.[3]

The Anglican Church of St Leonard is Grade II* listed.[4][5]

Keevil Primary School serves the surrounding villages.
