East Keal Church, Lincolnshire

The villages of East Keal and West Keal stand on a dramatic ridge which marked the end of the Lincolnshire Wolds before the land drops down to the Fenland around Boston. Views from here are spectacular on a clear day.

East Keal Church appears to be older than West Keal, but is in fact younger, dating to the 13th and 14th Centuries with some rebuilding in the 1850s. The rebuilding here was less extensive than at West Keal and hence the church maintains an older appearance. Both churches are dedicated to St. Helen, which can lead to confusion!

The Churchyard here offers less clear views down over the Fens, but is rewarding in a bucolic “hidden corner” sort of way.
