Keld Countryside and Heritage Centre is the 'shop window' for Keld Resource Centre and opened in May 2011. The Centre occupies the former horse stables and coach room in the Literary Institute Building which have been sensitively restored for this purpose.
The Centre tells the story of our village including hill farming, local people, vernacular architecture, wildlife conservation and the history of the chapel buildings. Positioned in the village centre and close to the ‘coast to coast’ trail the centre is proving to be a greatly valued addition to village life. It is also the base for our programme of activities and events which include craft demonstrations.
The Centre is free and open to the public between 08.00 and 21.00 (summer) and 08.30 to 17.00 (winter).
