Kettlewell is a village in the historical region of the West Riding of Yorkshire, in England.[1] It is one of the many villages throughout Britain where witches and wizards settled in numbers after the International Statute of Secrecy to rely on each other for mutual support, living alongside a Muggle population.[2]

In local wizarding parlance, Grypts (that is, Grindylow larvae) are called "Candypole".[3]
