We've just been for the second time to this intriguing piece of artwork. We think it is well placed, affords excelletn views, is of interest as an installation and is convenient for a warming cup o' tea in Pateley afterwards.

Excellent attraction. Wrap up warm if going at this time of year (especially hat). Park car and then walk up the incline to the high stone walls. Go up the narrow pathway between the walls and when you reach the dome in the path, turn up right or left . Just keep walking and come out to an amazing view.... More

Just a great place to go and see some fantastic views like being in an aeroplane without taking off. Need to be well wrapped up make sure you have a hat as when you get to the top its very windy but well worth it. Second best bit is when your at the top you can look into the working... More

A fab little FREE attraction to stop off at on your travels. Stretch your legs and walk up the wheelchair accessible path up to the stone monument. At the top there is a surprise view which I won't spoil for you and also amazing views all over Nidderdale. There is a small, sort of stone maze type area where you... More

This recently built "attraction" gives great views of the working quarry to one side and Nidderdale everywhere else. It is accessed via a steep path a few minutes walk from a car park. Brief, informative, interesting information is available at The Cut about the quarry and surrounding area where remnants of old mine workings are visible. Visit in summer but... More

Drive west out of Pateley Bridge on B6265 and you can't miss this attraction. Park in the free car park, climb a short steep path and be rewarded with the best views in Nidderdale. The Dales to three sides and a working quarry on the fourth. Climb the short towers and information is around the stone walls.

We visited here originally to see an old Lime Kiln situated at the site and accessible from the same car park. This was awesome in it's own right, but 10 minutes with a young child, via stroking the neighbouring ponies, and it was all over! But... .... We decided to follow the path to the Coldstones Cut, only a 600m... More

Like Northumberlandia it's beside an opencast works but with far better views. It's not a day out but worth stopping for a visit.

Maybe I was expecting too much but it did not do a lot for me. The views to the quarry were very interesting but did they really need to spend all that money ? What happens to this attraction when the quarry closes ? Worth a visit if you are passing, just for the views.
