Pictures of Kelloe
Popular village, with pubs, shops and restaurants. It has pleasant riverside areas and is in close proximity to historic Hartlepool Quay and the seaside resort town of Peterlee on England's northern coast.
Kelloe is probably best known for its historic Norman church dedicated to Saint Helen. In the church visitors can see a plaque commemorating the birth of the famous poetess Elizabeth Barrett Browning who spent her early years in the nearby village of Coxoe. Also on display is the sculpted Kelloe Cross.
The landscape of the area is full of reminders of the days when the region was dominated by mining and much can be seen belonging to this period. Some of the old colliery sites have been over taken by nature, visitors will find both woodland and grassland in the area. The nature reserve in Kelloe has been formed by the Durham Wildlife Trust, whose aim is to return a landscape ruined by centuries of mining back to its original state, thus providing habitats for wildlife and preserving the natural heritage of the region.
Kelloe is within easy reach of Durham's magnificent Cathedral.
