  • Gayle is a hamlet sited 0.4-mile (0.64 km) south of Hawes in Wensleydale, North Yorkshire, England. Gayle was originally a farming settlement but the population grew during the late 18th century to around 350 with employment in local quarries, coal-mining in Sleddale and in a water-driven cotton mill on Gayle Beck. The beck is noted for its steep descent through Gayle into Hawes, and for the Aysgill waterfall, 1-mile (1.6 km) upstream of the hamlet. The population of the village later contracted. In modern times, the population of the hamlet is recorded within the Parish of Hawes for census purposes. Historically, the hamlet was in the Parish of Aysgarth, in the Wapentake of Hang West. Hawes was a small village or hamlet until the late 1790s, when the Richmond to Lancaster Turnpike was diverted away from the moor south of Gayle to run through Hawes, which accelerated the growth of Hawes and established that as a parish. The hamlet is now part of the Parish of Hawes in the district of Richmondshire. East of the hamlet is the remains of a supposed Roman encampment, believed to be an outpost of the camp at neaby Bainbridge. The Cam High Fell road passed near to Gayle, and the village itself may have been a point where Gayle Beck was either bridged, or forded. A ford still runs through the beck to the west of the grade II listed Gayle Bridge. The main road through the hamlet ran in an east\west formation; the barnch into Hawes was not opened until 1829 as part of act relating to the Hawes to Kendal Turnpike. Gayle Mill, constructed in 1780s, is now a grade II* listed building, a scheduled monument and came third in the BBC's 2004 Restoration contest. Originally a cotton-spinning mill it was converted to a sawmill in 1878. It is the oldest structurally unaltered cotton mill in existence, and its Thomson Double-Vortex turbine built by Williamson's of Kendal in 1878 is believed to be the world's oldest surviving water turbine still in its original situation. The mill has been restored and is now open to the public. Nikolaus Pevsner, writing in his book The Buildings of England; Yorkshire, the North Riding, describes Gayle as "...in its village way, is almost as intricate as Hawes, almost as intricate as an Italian stone village...". The core area of the older pre-20th century village, was created as a conservation area in 2001, with most of the other housing being situated on the road north into Hawes. Gayle had a Methodist Church, constructed around 1755. A breakaway Methodist sect, associated with the Sandemanians in Scotland, was previously associated with the village, but only their graveyard, east of the chapel now remains. The chapel itself was adapted into the village institute, and is now a grade II listed building. Gayle relies primarily on farming and tourism, with the area boasting campsites and bed-and-breakfasts, as well as being a popular location for holiday homes. (en)
