Welcome to our Web Site.

East Keal is situated at the southern edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, some 14 miles north of Boston and approximately 3 miles south of Spilsby. The population is circa. 400.
There is ample evidence of human activity in and around the village dating back many thousands of years. Two hundred years ago most of the local population were either directly dependent on the land or worked in the brick and tile industry which flourished prior to the advent of mass produced bricks in the early nineteen hundreds.
The village contains a number of fine houses and cottages. Six are Grade 11 listed and two of the cottages are of the traditional mud and stud method of construction.
Today, the Village remains surrounded by rich farm land growing mainly arable crops and some grassland rearing  beef, cattle and sheep. The sweeping views over the fens are renowned and on a clear day stretch across the Wash to Norfolk. There is an excellent network of footpaths and bridleways linking to surrounding villages.
