Take hat and gloves and make sure they are well attached! Walk up from car park (free but badly signposted so missed it), past the leadmine (fascinating, but do it on the way back), through the gate and up the hill. When you enter the...More

Well worth a visit when in the area. You take a short walk up a hill to arrive at a built viewpoint overlooking a working mine. Very interesting for all ages.

Following 'tourist info' we decided to explore and were not disappointed. The walk up was made more enjoyable by choosing a beautiful sunny day and the views glorious. Really good information about the quarry etc. Would recommend.

This is a great place to visit. On a clear day you can see for miles and are rewarded wth breathtaking views in all directions. I thought it was going to be good but did not appreciate how outstanding it was going to be.

Very easy to sail past the car park and a bit larger signage would be appreciated. A not-too-taxing 500 yard climb up a good gravel path and you are into the 'installation.' I'm not an arty person, so I've no idea of the message behind...More

Yes, dogs are allowed, but I would keep them on a lead, otherwise they could disappear over into the quarry! There are also sheep around in the fields on the way up there.
