Visited Coldstones Cut with view to including on circular walk for our walking group lister in the year. Quite breezy on the walk up to the sculpture but blowing a gale at the top. Hold on to your hats! But what a stunning creation and terrific viewpoint of all of surrounding countryside. The information tablets are excellent describing how the... More

An absolute must-see if you happen to visit Pateley Bridge. Breath-taking views especially in August with heather in full bloom. We took our 18-month-old who went up the steep hill a fair bit and adored the sculpture-maze. (It may be a bit of struggle to push a buggy up to the top.) This is an exciting place for a little...

Walking up from the car park you have no expectation of what it will be like at the top. Stunning and a wonderful surprise. Greatly enjoyed by our teenagers who are hard to impress. Followed by a delicious cake and coffee at Toft Gate Barn Cafe just below the car park.

Just a short walk up the relatively steep hill brings you to an incredible modern monument and tribute to the quarry industry. Fantastic views from the viewing areas with very informative displays. Will definitely go again.

Amazing place. Didn't expect the view at the top, it was a real surprise! Like a scene from a James Bond movie.

We cycled here from nearby Greenhow and propped our bikes against the fence whilst we explored the sculpture. It's brilliant, so unexpectedly good and very unusual. The view of the quarry and surrounding countryside are spectacular. Afterwards we recommend that you pay a visit to the Toftgate Farm cafe just down the road, for a pot of tea and homemade... More

Such a short walk from the car park and then there are these wonderful sculptures and the most amazing views of the quarry. Thoroughly recommend a visit.

Fantastic views from the top. We didn't know what to expect after the shortish, steep climb to the top. A working quarry, and 360 degree view . A great free way to spend an hour. Spotlessly clean, although no bins for litter. Fully recommend a visit for all ages

I visited this having only seen pictures of it and not really knowing what the point of the sculpture was. I was SO surprised to walk to the end of the "street" and see a giant noisy quarry. Really amazing watching the giant trunks bumble about and getting an idea of the depth of the quarry. The Sculpture itself is... More

Well worth am hour (or more) of your time as you pass or if your in Pateley bridge. Free parking and a brisk walk (600m) uphill brings you to this made made wonder, explore and take in the views, the quarry itself is quite breathtaking.
