This project has been designed to be a portal for information about the Gayles village that is not easily available elsewhere. A Wikipedia page exists, but take the information with a pinch of salt

Why the .info rather than Cybersquatters buy domains when they become available (for the basic rate) with no intention of using the domain ever. If you want to use this domain ( for your website, then of course this domain will become available (for a price —)


The domain name info is a generic top-level domain (gTLD) in the Domain Name System (DNS) of the Internet. The name is derived from information, though registration requirements do not prescribe any particular theme.

New to the site: 13/07/2019:

Map of Gayles updated to include the new holiday accommodation – Gayles Hall Barns

A new (for this site), slightly longer walk along the top of the hill and then down to Kirby Hill and The Shoulder of Mutton

A map of the common has been added. Explore the paths to find hidden delights and to chance upon the unfolding of the views



Any omissions are my fault, as indeed any errors should land up at my door. External links should be current but as with all things internet, they may break from time to time. Please let me know if this is the case
