Welcome to our village: a tiny hamlet in Upper Swaledale, North Yorkshire, UK.  Right at the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, Keld is where two of the most famous long distance walks in the UK - the Pennine Way and Coast to Coast - cross. 

Keld's long history, outstanding natural environment and rich heritage make it a special place for people from around the world.  Keld Resource Centre works to preserve this atmosphere and to make Keld accessible for everyone.

Come and visit us.  Here are some of the things you can see and do when you do.  We hope to welcome you soon.
