Gunnerside

Gunnerside is a village in Swaledale, North Yorkshire, England, situated between the River Swale and its tributary, Gunnerside Beck. Gunnerside Ghyll (or Gunnerside Gill), a smaller valley running northwards, at right angles to the Swale valley (Swaledale), was the site of a major lead mining industry in Swaledale until the late nineteenth century.

Gunnerside is the site of a traditional Yorkshire Dales public house at the foot of Gunnerside Ghyll, The Kings Head, as well as a Methodist Chapel, a part-time post office (in the Literary Institute), a primary (elementary) school and a working smithy/museum. Local employment centres around clockmaking, hill farming, gamekeeping and construction, the latter concerned chiefly with the maintenance of traditional stone-built field walls, houses and barns.
