We did not know what to expect from this achitectural art installation but it was so interesting and thoughtfully designed... Yes, the upward path is a bit steep for wobbly walkers but most walking folk of many abilities did it in their own time with the help of cut out steps and a hand rail near the top. If you... More

Great views of the quarry and that of Yorkshire . Worth a visit, but word warning the route back down can be slippery under foot with the lose stones.

Visited here whilst on a day out with my 7 year old nephew, the short stroll up the hill offered a great opportunity to tire him out by encouraging him to run up and he was pleased to see the giant's bike near the top! The artist's installation afforded great views although it was an exceptionally clear day and the... More

In driving through the dales we came by this artists structure. It is a curious place and worth looking in at if you are passing by. It allows great views over the countryside, be aware that there is a little incline up to it from the car park though. The structure and parking are free. Interestingly it was as fascinating...

Steep climb up to see this amazing sculpture, but worth the effort. Wear stout shoes and take a stick for the loose shale if not too sure of your footing.

Wasn't sure what to expect on the walk up, well worth it. Just to see the quarry at work with the big machinery, the kids will be jealous. Could spend hours just watching them. The design of the viewing area is very good and the compass of places in the world on the raised area is worth a look.

Pleasantly surprised at the scale of these caverns, reasonably easy to access with care, many stalactites and ....mites; well produced Guide leaflet, and shop prices fair.

Short brisk walk from car park to top of Coldstone's Cut but we'll worth the effort. Very interesting views from the top into the working Quarry and also brilliant views of the surrounding countryside. Then down into Pateley for Tea and Tiffin☕🍰.

A steep but short walk from the car park. The cut installation is worth visiting and reflects the shapes from the quarry that inspires it. Once there you can ascend to the top by 2 spiral paths. It's also good to view a working sandstone quarry from above as well as the fantastic landscapes across Yorkshire. Further down and nearer... More

A short steep walk from the car park and you approach the ends of two low but massive walls, between which streams away a strangely narrow tarmac street with even narrower pavements, yellow lines and bollards. As you walk down the street, towards the open sky, the walls get higher and higher till you are launched out onto a broad... More
