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

Superb location, wonderful views (even at dusk), and very close to Pateley Bridge for warming up over a pint in the pub afterwards

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
