Kellington, North Yorkshire

Kellington is a small village and civil parish in the Selby district of North Yorkshire, England, on the banks of the River Aire. Situated almost equidistant between the towns of Pontefract and Selby, the village dates back to at least the 11th Century when it was listed in the Domesday Book (as Chelinctone). The semi-rural community grew in size with the advent of local mining as housing was built to accommodate the workers of nearby Kellingley Colliery.
