Brief stop

Worth a brief stop (nothing more) for a walk up to the top of the sculpture and views over the North Yorkshire countryside and into a working quarry. Very windy on our visit

Dad pulls off the road and the kids groaned after a long day out, but it was really worth going. The view is incredible!

Stunning location and very interesting. A massive construction which visitors can freely walk through and explore, the sculpture overlooks the huge working Coldstones Quarry and offers spectacular views over the scenery of Nidderdale in the Yorkshire Dales, my home I live just about 3/4 miles away, so lucky. You can use the car park, plenty of space, it's quite a... More

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
