Just a short walk up the relatively steep hill brings you to an incredible modern monument and tribute to the quarry industry. Fantastic views from the viewing areas with very informative displays. Will definitely go again.

Amazing place. Didn't expect the view at the top, it was a real surprise! Like a scene from a James Bond movie.

We cycled here from nearby Greenhow and propped our bikes against the fence whilst we explored the sculpture. It's brilliant, so unexpectedly good and very unusual. The view of the quarry and surrounding countryside are spectacular. Afterwards we recommend that you pay a visit to the Toftgate Farm cafe just down the road, for a pot of tea and homemade... More

Such a short walk from the car park and then there are these wonderful sculptures and the most amazing views of the quarry. Thoroughly recommend a visit.

Fantastic views from the top. We didn't know what to expect after the shortish, steep climb to the top. A working quarry, and 360 degree view . A great free way to spend an hour. Spotlessly clean, although no bins for litter. Fully recommend a visit for all ages

I visited this having only seen pictures of it and not really knowing what the point of the sculpture was. I was SO surprised to walk to the end of the "street" and see a giant noisy quarry.

We had read about this place from a "things to do" leaflet. As we were in the area we decided to visit. The attraction is about half a mile from the car park and does include a steepish section, but the path is quite well maintained. Once at the top of the hill the views are spectacular and the stone... More

A bracing walk up the hill gives the reward of good views. Worth a visit. Easy to find and large free car park.
