The village of Gunnerside in Swaledale is named after the Viking chief Gunnar, The present name is derived from the words Gunnar's Seat, and it is right in the heart of what was a thriving lead mining community. There are still plenty of evidence of the old mines and workings for the more adventurous up on Gunnerside Ghyll.
