Swinner Gill is a deeply cut tributary valley of Swaledale near Keld.

Looking up East Grain from Swinner Gill

Mid way up the valley the gill splits in two, with the beck from East Grain (pictured above) feeding in down waterfalls on the eastern side.

The area was once scene of a thriving lead mining industry. Although the miners have long gone various ruined buildings, spoil heaps and of course the mines themselves remain as testament to their toils.
