Keele Campus

Keele (from the anglo saxon Cy-Hill or cow hill). The Sneyd family took over the estate in 1544 from the Knights Templar, having been in the area since the 13th Century.

The first Keele Hall was built in 1580 and it rebuilt in 1860. The current Keele Hall is the third building on the site, is a major conference, wedding and banqueting venue, and has Grade II listing from English Heritage.

Ralph Sneyd founded the Keele Park racecourse and built breeding stables (now the Clock House buildings).

Clock House buildings.

The Keele racecourse was located to the right of Clockhouse Drive (above and below) and the home straight is now part of the M6.

During the Civil War, the Sneyds took the King's side in this a predominantly Parliamentarian area.

The university was founded in 1949, taking over the estate which had last been used to station military forces during the second world war and before that being rented by Grand Duke Michael of Russia.
