Spectacular 360 degree views of the Yorkshire Dales. This is a great place to pop into if you’re travelling between Pateley Bridge and Grassington. The ‘art installation’ consists of two spiral viewing towers, one of which has distances to major cities and places of interest...More

If in the area a must see, at least to satisfy curiosity. After leaving the car park a steady incline over partially rough track brings you to a giant cycle sculpture which you must not climb. As if. The spiralling structure gives splendid views across...More

This is a lookout over an open cut quarry as well as the surrounding countryside. It was a steep climb from the car park but worth it

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.
