Was once amazing but now National Trust have spoilt it :( Sadly now like many other areas it is becoming commercialised

This is so much fun. It's basically a load of rocks but you can climb all over them. There's a café at the end where you can get ice cream. Really good for picnics as well.

Could not believe that the National Trust have now 'prettied up' the site with a few bits of wood and gravel and expect a £5 parking fee in return. This lets you stay for 4 hours : you actually need around 1 hour (today 45 minutes). And they've constructed the car park the opposite end of the rocks from the toilets with wooden signs pointing in all directions but all leading to the same place! Really stupid. And ... £2.25 for a small ice cream cone? I don't think so.

Great walk, fantastic views across Yorkshire and only pay for parking! Was reccomended by the hotel staff. Well worth a visit!

What a lot of places I know! Used to go climbing on these fantastic rocks with my brother when we were kids. ( 70 years ago!") Havn't been there for years so probably 'elf and safety have stepped in now! Sorry no recent photos. There is probably a fee charged now like everywhere else. Don't want to put you off but nothing stays the same. Maybe its still as I remember.
Oh no! have just read that there is a 'visitor centre' there now. And a parking charge!
