Keele is a picturesque rural village and the centre of the village is a conservation area, with fine examples of Victorian architecture, including the village pub.
Keele is an unusual parish as the University and Science Park dominate a large section of its eastern fringe. As a result the number of residents varies considerably throughout the year, increasing significantly during university semesters when students are in residence.
We are well served by public transport due to the proximity of the university, and the campus provides facilities for the village and surrounding areas, including shops, cafes, a bank, a post office and a GP on the university campus.
