Grains Gill is the name of the valley that Grains Gill Beck runs through.

Note on the mineral list:

Carpholite and several other species supposedly collected here in the 1950s and 1960s by Arthur Kingsbury (1906-1968) are now considered unlikely. This is one of a number of likely or definitely falsified Kingsbury localities.

Note: Kingsbury and Hartley occasionally refer to the Carrock mine site as "Grainsgill" (Cooper & Stanley, 1990).
