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.
