Garrigill, Cumbria is a small village in the North Pennine region of the UK situated on the banks and close to the source of the River South Tyne. Historically part of Cumberland, today it is within the Garrigill ward of the civil parish of Alston Moor within the district of Eden.The village's name should not be confused with the hamlet of Galligill in the Nent valley also within Alston Moor.The village's former name is Garrigill-Gate and it was earlier known as Gerard's Gill. (Gill is a Norse word for a steep sided valley).At its peak Garrigill was home to 1,000 people, mainly employed in the lead mining industry; now its population numbers less than 200. Those who live and work in the village are mainly employed in agriculture. Garrigill Post Office is a traditional village store which has not changed substantially since the 1950s and is an attraction to many visitors although at one time the village had four shops including a Co-op store. Both the Pennine Way, the oldest of the UK's National Trails, and the Sea to Sea Cycle Route (C2C) England's most popular long distance cycle route, pass through the village.
