Worth the climb

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.

Super views and a lovely walk up to the cut. Can be a bit breezy and quite bleek so dress warmly. No facilities.

Views from here are breathtaking. We walked from Pateley Bridge up to coldstone cut via footpaths and bridleways but there is a car park near there so you can drive rather than walk if you prefer

If you are in the Pateley Bridge area it's only a few minutes by car up the hill on the Grassington road to see this. It is a massive structure built out of local stone from which you will have a great view of the huge quarry which is otherwise hidden and also wide views across the surroundings. There is... More

We went one snowy cold day. By heck it's chilly up there but amazing views. Great fun working out how far away and in what direction are significant places in the world.

Free parking at the bottom of a steep, but short climb. The structure itself is impressive, but the views are stunning, and if you like heavy engineering, you can watch the nearby quarry in action. I'm not sure it's the place to go in bad weather, or poor visibility, but you can't beat it in a clear day.

If you've never been here you will have no idea it even exists. The in the Lime Kiln first, which is interesting enough on its own. But the sculpture, the views and the quarry itself are simply jaw-dropping. Take an hour out of your journey and give yourselves a treat. One of the best presented public sites I have ever... More

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.
