This is a Must See in The Dales

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

Quirky sculpture /instillation. Short steep walk. Fabulous views. Well worth a visit. Combine it with a trip to nearby Pateley Bridge.

Well worth a trip out - there is moderately steep climb to the top but once there the views are worth it. The scale of the structure is huge but it blends in well with the surroundings. There are no facilities on site but following the visit we visited Toft Gate Barn Cafe which was an excellent cafe with great... More

First time that I have been and the steep walk is well worth the effort however you need to be careful particularly returning to the car park scree very slippy underfoot The views are panoramic and you can can see for miles in all directions I went on a sunny day and I could see the whole vista of Yorkshire...

Definitely a place to visit on a fine day, because the views are great. It's a bit of a walk uphill, but nothing too awful for any average person. It almost defies description - it's a sculpture you walk into and around and on top of, with walkways that feel like cobbly lanes, and a fantastic engraved directional place-finder on... More

We walked around the old Lime Kiln and found it fascinating. The Cut is rather a climb so you need to be fit to get there.
