Latest reviews | Events in Kellington | 10 Places to Stay

There has been a settlement at Kellington since at least Norman times – it is mentioned in the Domesday Book as Chelinctone, and the church of St Edmund’s dates from 1185. The village, at the southern end of North Yorkshire, is on the banks of the river Aire, and in earlier times had the coaching route to Selby from Pontefract pass through it. This route is now a footpath, one of several in and around the village offering a pleasant stroll in rural surroundings. St Edmund’s was a Templar foundation, taken over by the Knights Hospitallers of St John when the Templars were brought down in 1312. It is a pretty building that would perhaps fox all but the keenest scholars of church architecture, with Norman, later medieval, and Tudor elements, confused still further by Victorian and later restoration work – the tower was dismantled and rebuilt by British Coal in the early nineties prior to mining work deep beneath the church. The William and Mary gateposts (yet another era) are protected by order. The church is half a mile from the village, atop a slight rise in the ground, possibly located where it would be safe from flooding by the Aire, although an alternative theory proposes that it was set there to serve other villages in the parish. What was its vicarage is some distance away, these days serving as a substantial B&B. Kellington these days benefits from its location close to the M62 east-west route and the A19 north-south, many of its residents commuting to the major towns and cities just to the west, though some work in the power station at Eggborough. Unlike many settlements of a similar size Kellington has retained the amenities needed for a village to keep its soul: in addition to the church there is a thriving primary school, a proper corner shop, and not one but two pubs, which seems like showing off. It even has a village chippie.
