About the location

GARRIGILL, CUMBRIA

Alston 3.6 miles.

Surrounding this small village is Alston Moor, a beautiful and diverse area known for its rare alpine flora and moorland birds. This was once one of the richest mining areas in Britain and reminders of this industry are everywhere. Grassed-over spoil heaps, sunken pits, rusting machinery and a myriad of tracks and byways all speak of the riches once gleaned from underground. Nestling in these upland valleys are the lead-mining villages of Nenthead and Garrigill. Standing on the River South Tyne, not far from its source, and near Cross Fell is this small village with access to the summit of Burnhope Seat.. The centre of the village is the green, a post office and village store, St John’s church and the village hall, with childrens play area to the rear, are nearby. At Ashgillside and Beldy there are waterfalls namely Ashgill Force and Thortergill Force. The Pennine Way passes through the village on its way from Dufton via Cross Fell, Great Dun Fell and on to Alston. The Alton area was well known for lead mining and there are a number in the area with an award winning lead mining museum only a few miles away at Killhope.
