Kleit is a church village in the municipality of Maldegem (Belgium) south of the town of Maldegem with an area of 2150 ha. On December 31, 2007, the village had 2627 inhabitants. The name 'Clay' comes from the thick clay layer that is present here close to the surface. The inhabitants of Kleit are called 'Kleitenaars'. Their nickname is 'the broom binders', after the relatively many broom binders who used to live in the region.

Kleit has existed as an independent parish since 1857. There is a neo-Gothic church from 1863 dedicated to Saint Vincent de Paul. This church has a pulpit with beautiful carvings from 1661 and a baroque-style tabernacle. There are also murals in the church. Outside the church are chapels in honor of Saint Anthony Abbot and Saint Cornelius.

I hope you like it
