Kielder Village is a small, remote village in western Northumberland, England. Located at the head of Kielder Water and in the north west of Kielder Forest, the village is 3mi from the Scottish border.HistoryEarly settlement around Kielder Castle, a hunting lodge built by the Duke of Northumberland in 1775. Previous settlements were expanded in the 1950s by the Forestry Commission who constructed housing to accommodate the workers employed in the planting of Kielder Forest. Most of this housing has now been sold back to the private sector.GovernanceKielder is in the parliamentary constituency of Hexham. Until 1 April 2009 it was within Tynedale local government district, but following local government restructing in Northumberland the county is now covered by a unitary authority, Northumberland County Council.GeographyIt is claimed that Kielder has the lowest level of light pollution in England – hence the construction nearby of Kielder Observatory.ClimateAs with the rest of the British Isles, Kielder experiences a maritime climate with cool summers and mild winters. There is a Met Office weather station at Kielder Castle. Since 1960, reported temperatures have ranged from -21.7C in January 1982, up to 30.0C during August 2003.
