Gearstones near Settle
« on: Monday 10 August 09 23:27 BST (UK) »
Trying to find further background info on Henry Staveley who was the gamekeeper at Gearstones on the 1871 census. Is this the ex-pub which is on the main road on the three peaks hike between Pen-y-ghent and Whernside?

There was a story of a construction worker on the railway viaduct who threw some explosive onto the fire at the pub and nearly brought the house down

I did a search.  There are lots of sites but this one says it was a shooting lodge at one time http://gearstones.com/history/

Hi Derek,Just seen your query re Gearstones. Yes it is an outdoor centre now but it was an inn.
My Great Great grandfather Francis Whaley owned it and when the dynamite incident took place his daughter's father in law Francis Yates,who was also my Great Great Grandfather, was the innkeeper.

Thanks Rowlf - it was a few years ago and it was Kim who was trying to find out about the Staveleys.

I saw a Time Team programme a while back about the construction gang temporary camp on the hill above the tunnel. They must have been close to the pub.
