Welcome to the Keld Resource Centre Website.
Keld is a very special place; at Keld “a sundial records the hours but time is measured in centuries” (Alfred Wainwright).
In English terms Keld is remote. The village is located in the north west corner of the Yorkshire Dales National Park close to the county boundaries of North Yorkshire, Durham and Cumbria.
The landscape is an exquisite expression of the Dales vernacular comprising rough dry stone walls, field barns and hillside farm houses. The village which is scarcely more than a hamlet stands besides the River Swale and features the largest concentration of waterfalls in England.
Keld truly is what Celtic spirituality calls ‘a thin place’, where the dividing line between the holy and the ordinary seems exceptionally narrow, indeed the poet W.H.Auden said of the area that it is ’one of my holy places‘. Keld is home of a special project, Keld Resource Centre, a partnership between Churches and the community.
