50 years of Gearstones

50 years ago, on the 2nd June 1972, Gearstones Lodge was purchased by the people of Mirfield and the new Gearstones charity is formed.

Half a century later, we’re still going strong, supporting local and national schools and groups with the perfect stay away in the Yorkshire Dales.

And so, with this momentous occasion coming up, we’d love you to hear and share any memories, stories or photos of your stay at Gearstones Lodge during this time.

Feel free to comment here, or email the committee via the Gearstones website.

Here’s to another 50!
