Over Kellet Village

The village of Over Kellet lies on the B6254 just one kilometre from junction 35 of the M6 motorway. Its centre is an open and unique village green which includes both a cross roads and slip roads in the form of a diamond shape. In early Spring the Green is ablaze with daffodils planted by the pupils of the local Primary School.
The village boasts a pub (The Eagles Head), a village store and Post Office,the Parish Church of St Cuthbert's, a recently refurbished Village Hall, a C. of E. Endowed Primary School, and a War Memorial, all of which have been featured in the 'Best Kept Village of Lancashire' Competition which was first won in 1999.

There are extensive views from most parts of the Village. The foreground is rural but embraces the narrow communications corridor taken up by the A6 trunk road and the M6 Motorway plus the West Coast Main Rail Line. The Lancaster Canal also passes close to the Village.

The background to this corridor includes Morecambe Bay to the west with the Lakeland Fells forming a backdrop all the way round to Shap. The limestone crags of Farleton Knott and Warton Crag take up the middle ground.
