This modern sculpture is a heart exercising walk from the car park. It can be very cold and windy there so go prepared. Its worth stopping to see this free attraction. The working quarry is interesting to see and the countryside is beautiful. We looked at the lime kiln on the way back to the car park and then called... More

Lovely couple of hours with the kids walking up here. Free parking and a good view from the top! Be prepared for some major gusts of wind, it takes your breath away!!!

great walk around, we decided to risk the light windy rain, which turned rather bad by the end. but it is worth a walk around, and explore. remember, you don't get to go to these places often, or more then once, weather aside, get out of the car and look about. Also, the yellow bikes that are scattered around are... More

We went here on the recommendation of the owner of the B & B we were staying at and had no idea what to expect. When we arrived it was snowing and very cold, so several of our party chose to pop to a cafe down the road, whilst the rest of us walked up to the quarry. - and... More

This was on our walk route so we decided to walk up and have a look. It was okay, but not something I would have taken a special trip for. I suspect my opinion is not helped by the fact that it was blowing a gale and drizzly, so the views were somewhat compromised.

A steep walk up from the car park - with a detour to see the old lime kiln near the bottom - without much to see on the way, except a gigantic yellow bike (the tour de France made a huge impact in these parts). When you get to the top, and enter the narrow passageway, there is still no... More

Came across this entirely by accident. Was looking for somewhere to stop for 20 minutes to break up a long journey. Very little to see from the side of the road and the structure is designed so that you approach through a narrow cut, then suddenly the full amazing view opens up in front of you. A definite WOW factor!... More

We didn't know what was there! Not true really.,because you could see it clearly enough,,a huge bike with tractor sized wheels painted bright yellow.Ok we needed a break and there was a good path to the bike.And then the path turned right to pass between two stone walls getting ever higher.Intriguing !At the end of this narrow yellow lined passage...
