Don't travel miles out of your way to see it but if you're in the area - well worth a visit! Basically all it is is a viewing platform for the local quarry - but what a structure! A huge stone monument with deep walled circular pathways leading to three high platforms - with extensive vistas on a good day.... More

Came across this place on my trusty Trip Advisor app whilst looking for things to do nearby. Thought it looked interesting and it was free so off we headed. There is a small carpark at the side of the road then there is a walk of approx 600m uphill to the Coldstones Cut. It's not too bad of a walk,... More

When it was announced that they were going to build a viewing platform for the quarry no one could have guessed that this superb structure would be the result. It's a fairly steep climb up from the small car park but it is worth it to see the excellent design and superb workmanship that has gone into making this "monument".

There's a short but sometime steep walk up to The Coldstones Cut but once there the views are great. When we visited it was incredibly windy but it was worth it to see this piece of modern art. Parking and visiting are free. Well worth a visit if you're passing or visiting the nearby Stump Cross Caverns.

The path up from the small car park gets progressively steeper as you near the Coldstones Cut but the climb is worth the effort. The path is stoned so no mud to traverse. On reaching the top you're faced with high thick stone wall through which a path passes through. In the centre of the path are two other paths... More

Worth a visit as this attraction is free. A bit of an uphill walk with a 3 & 5 year old but worth it at the top! You can view a working mine Mondays-Fridays from the observation areas at the top where the 360 degree panoramic views are amazing! If you tie this in with a visit to Stump Cross... More

This space combines art, a good short walk, geographical awareness, geology and a yellow bike left over from the Tour de France. A strange mix but it really works. If you are near here I would strongly recommend you visit.

Staying in PB and I went to the Cut three times: I loved it. Twice I had it to myself and it was magical - especially the first time, when I ran to it from PB as the sun was setting behind it, and the whole site was bathed in orange and felt very pagan and permanent. The dialogue between... More

Very different. What a lovely view of the surrounding landscapes. Very unique structure on the side of a working quarry

Went to this place not expecting it to be that good, and was pleasantly surprised. A short walk up Greenhow Hill takes you panoramic views of Nidderdale/Dales/The Quarry. It's quite mesmorising to stand and watch the working quarry for a while with the trucks going back and forth and loading into the machinery up at the top. The viewing platforms... More
