The name of the village derives from Ketel’s tūn, the homestead belonging to Ketel, from the Old Norse Ketill [3]

The village is the site of Kedleston Hall, the historic residence of the Curzon family and now run by the National Trust. The parish church is All Saints,[4] which is in the care of the Churches Conservation Trust.[5]
