About Garrigill

This delightful place can be found on the banks of the South Tyne River, it is also on the route of the arduous Pennine Way surrounded by numerous beauty spots.

The village has a spacious village green, around which are clusters of solid stone houses and cottages. One of its oldest buildings is the village pub dating to the 17th-century when it was a coaching inn. Many of its old features are retained including its beautiful flag-stone floor and fireplace. The village has a general store and a tiny church dedicated to St.John which was built in 1790 to replace an earlier church. A stone walled churchyard gives shelter to graves dating back to late in the 16th-century. The interior has Rolls of Honour painted by local artists.

In the 18th-century the London Lead Mining Company were important to the livelihood of the community, and the Quaker Company built cottages for its workers, some of these are now used as holiday cottages.

Here in this picturesque remote valley the only traffic jams you are likely to come across are those caused by sheep and cattle being moved from meadow to meadow. It is after all famous walking country so visitors find little to mar it timeless charm and tranquillity, save for walkers and cyclists.
