Kelby is a hamlet in the civil parish of Heydour, in the South Kesteven district of Lincolnshire, England. It lies 5 miles (8 km) south-west from Sleaford, 9 miles (14 km) north-east from Grantham and 3 miles (5 km) south-east from Ancaster.[1] Kelby, with Heydour, Aisby, Oasby and Culverthorpe are the five hamlets within Heydour parish.[2]

Kelby church is dedicated to St Andrew and is a chapelry of Heydour.[2] Its tower was rebuilt in 1881 after a collapse. The church basement is Norman and the font Early English, with pews originally from the chapel at nearby Grade II listed Culverthorpe Hall.[3][4]

A chapel for Primitive Methodists was established in 1859.[2]
