Thanks to a huge effort from the all the volunteers the lodge kitchen has been fully refurbished.
The refurbishment has seen the kitchen been updated to catering standards with stainless steel work surfaces, drawers and shelves. The walls have been coated in a specialist paint product and a new resin flooring laid. Two new stainless steel full height fridges and a full height freezer have replaced the exiting ones.
The bedroom renovation project is now nearly complete, with one remaining bedroom (Selside) left to complete.
The virtual tour page has been updated with new picture of the following renovated rooms:
The virtual tour of the lodge has now been updated to include up to date pictures of the newly renovated bedroom “Thorns”.
During a small tidy up we came across a couple of interesting bits and pieces including a report of work to be done during the renovation, which took place in 1980. This report includes a number of pictures we estimate that the were taken during 1979. While they don’t show Gearstones in its current state (or inside) they may be of interest to anyone who has ever visited.
These pictures can be seen on the 1970 Photos page in the history section.
