Blows away the cobwebs, with a surprise at the top.

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

A real surprise we found by accident. Well worth a visit. The construction is unusual and labyrinth like. Certainly something different.

A most unusual addition to the variety of the offerings that the Dales have to offer the tourist. Well worth the short uphill walk from the small car park. No toilet facilities or refreshments on site but the Toft Gate cafe just down the road is highly recommended. The massive stone sculpture resting on the top of a hill overlooking... More

On a beautiful bright September afternoon we visited this sculpture and so glad that we did. After the short upward 500m trek we arrived at the sculpture and was rewarded with fablulous 360 degree views of Yorkshire's finest and also overlooking a working quarry. Free too. Amazing.
