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

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.

Been meaning to visit since it was built and a visit to The Sportsmans Arms in Wath provided a good opportunity. We visited on a clear, warmish, day and enjoyed the stroll up. The structure was amazing - huge walls of cut stone blocks which made you feel you were entering an ancient monument of some sort. The circular climb... More

A short steep walk takes you to the tastfully produced veiwing platform where you can see the workings of the quarry. You are surrounded by a superb panorama of the dales (weather permitting) This was a unique stone structure with a full 360 degree information board of distances to various landmarks an destinations.

Quite a short steep walk up the hill along a rubble path so can be a little unsteady but solid. Very different monument to the quarry coldstone cut which is viewed from the monument. Made up of many Beautiful stones if you look at them a little closer. Worth an hour out of your day to go have a look... More

Short walk (one bit with a steep up hill climb) to the top of the hill where this art work creates a viewing platform from which you can admire the panoramic view of surrounding hills and valleys and watch the workings of the quarry. Creates a link between the old ruined Lime Kiln at the bottom near the car park... More

We visited on an overcast day but this didn't detract from the impressive views and the simple yet elegant stonework structure.The panorama of the 360 degree view was enhanced by the guide which gives distance to various landmarks and destinations not all of which are visible but fascinating nonethe less
