This huge stone spiral structure offers views well worth going out of your way to see! Dress warmly as the cut is a brisk walk up the hill and once there it draws you in. The kids ran around the passageways while we picked out places in most of Yorkshire that had family associations. We live in Pateley Bridge but... More

Stunning view over the fells and quarry. But of a steep walk upto it and although I had flat boots, I wish I had my walking boots on as the stones are on the large side. It was worth the walk.

This made an ok potter up a hillside and was exceptionally blowy up on top. A family group were having fun playing chase. Maybe an interesting visit for people into sculpture and or quarries. Pretty bleak view of quarry at top.

What an incredible structure! We were taken up there by friends who had previously been. Such an amazing view - 360 degrees. Can see Menwith Hills from the top. Seeing the quarry and the work was fascinating! Although the weather was quite windy and chilly - the sun was shining - and it was well worth the experience. Loved the... More

We went up on a very cold, windy, rainy and sleety day. In fact, the foulest weather I have ever walked in. Boggy underfoot as well as rocky and steep, it was also a challenging walk. However, the only impedance this had on our enjoyment was the fact that when we reached the top of the structure, we couldn't take... More

Great insight into mining in the area and a fabulous view over the dales. Easy parking and a short stroll to the top.

We have been up to cold stones cut on three occasions and in very different weather conditions, and believe me the weather makes all the difference. Even though the structure and immediate landscape around the site is wholly man made it seems to add to the natural beauty of the moors surrounding it, which is quite surprising. Personally, I am...

Another walk up Coldstone Cut with a twist - the location is impressive and the sculpture will blow you away both theoretically and literally. After having coffee and cake at the lovely Toft Gate Barn Café (just a few fields away) we set off in our wellies and winter woollies. It had been snowing at the top of Greenhow so... More

What an awesome structure, amazing place , and has a special feel as if it was built thousands of years ago. Feels as if your on top of the world with amazing views. A must visit destination but wrap up well in winter.

I love going to Coldstone Cut, great views, unique structure, its a place to clear the cobwebs out, great photos to be taken! As someone who has been many times when I heard about the Christmas Illuminations I was excited to go but sadly I was disappointed. It was pretty to have the structure walls lined in white LEDS but... More
