The village forms part of the civil parish of Elstronwick.

Lelley comes from the word 'Lelle' which means 'clearing in the woods'.[citation needed]

The village contains a public house, two benches (one a war memorial and the other a millennium bench) and a telephone box.

Lelley Wesleyan Methodist Church was demolished in the late 19th century.[citation needed]

In 1823 Lelly was in the parish of Preston and the Wapentake and Liberty of Holderness. Population was 119, which included a carrier who operated between the village and Hull once a week.[1]
