Details & History


The parish and village of East Keal is situated at the southern edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds.

An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is located14 miles north of Boston and 3 miles south of Spilsby. The population is around  400 people with some 160 houses.

There is ample evidence of human activity in and around the village dating back many thousands of years. In the 1800's most of the local population were either directly dependent on the land or worked in the brick and tile industry. This had  flourished prior to mass produced bricks in the early nineteen hundreds.

The village contains a number of fine houses and cottages; six of these are Grade II listed and two of the cottages are of the traditional mud and stud method of construction.
East Keal village remains surrounded by good farm land growing mainly arable crops and some grassland rearing  beef, cattle and sheep. The sweeping views over the fens are excellent and on a clear day you can see across the Wash to Norfolk.

A village shop and post office; a local garage M.O.T. centre, as well as many social groups help the village to thrive. There is an excellent network of footpaths and bridleways linking to surrounding villages.

Any suggestions, additions or improvements are most welcome and can be made by contacting the Clerk - details below.
