Gilbeber Laithe is a ruined field barn close to the lowest point of Barnoldswick (144m above sea level).

The barn is set amongst the drumlins to the north of Barnoldswick. (Drumlins are egg shaped hillocks sculpted by the ice sheets of the last ice age.) The barn is largely built from limestone which is the underlying rock at this part of Barnoldswick.

Gilbeber Laithe is close to a public footpath which runs from Greenberfield Lane to Bracewell Lane. The path is on the route of the Beating the Bounds walk.

Close to the old barn is a field style typical of those found in this area. Nearby, Stocks Beck is crossed by a farm bridge complete with gates.

It's not unusual to spot deer grazing close to this very quiet location and a heron will often be seen fishing in the beck.
