We were recommended a visit to Coldstones Cut by our B&B host in Pately Bridge, and we were very happy with our trip there. Easy parking by Toft Gate Lime Kiln - which is also very interesting. Walking in between the stone walls are a bit like going into a maze. The view out to the quarry is splendid, and... More

Impressive structure with great views. Wonder how much it cost to build. Steep walk up to the Cut, and take a fleece because it is windy even on a hot day. Probably won't bother visiting again though.

We were staying in Pateley Bridge and wanted something to do on our way home on the Sunday morning. Someone recommended the Coldstones Cut - not just for the public artwork, but also the historical lime kilns. We would pass on the recommendation. For those interested in industrial archaeology, the lime kilns are really interesting to walk round and explore.... More

Well worth the walk from the car park to the top of this structure. Interesting views of the quarry and good information boards. The nearby lime kilns are worth a visit as well.

We live in Harrogate and have never visited before even though we've heard lots about it. We had family visiting and due to the weather our plans had to change. After a wonderful breakfast at The Old School Tearooms in Hebden (see my review) we decided to make our way to Pateley Bridge. Can't recommend this place highly enough. The... More

Glad we stopped what a superb little attraction and very interesting piece of 'Modern Art' Easy walk up the hill to the main attraction, several Information Boards give the full history of the quarry and the...

Worth every step up the hill to discover something entirely unexpected. The dimensions of the quarry vista are unbelievable and the discovery of that view and the panoramic map locator at the top of the turrets keep you interested and mesmerised for ages.
