The Villages of the Yorkshire Wolds

Kelk


The narrow country road off the A166 twists and turns through the Wolds countryside with pheasants and partridges hiding in the hedgerows and wooded areas which run alongside, until it finds its way to the little village of Kelk. The pretty cottages both old and new line the 1 ½ miles long main street which is marked half way by Centre Farm and Centre Cottage. Gardens are found behind decorative brick walls and neat hedges and the beauty of the gardens and lawns pay tribute to the Kelk Gardening Club which is held monthly in the school rooms.

There is also a pretty Chapel along the main street with five arched stained glass windows above a heavy arched wooden door. There is a heavy marble plaque on its wall outside of memory of local who lost their lives fighting in the War.

The village pub is The Chestnut Horse which offers a warm country welcome to visitors with a host of ales, good food and open log fires.
