Wonderful modern sculpture which doubles as a lookout, but exposed to the elements so be prepared in case of inclement weather. Fantastic views into the adjacent quarry and over the surrounding landscape with excellent information boards and compass highlighting distant features/locations.

After a heavy snow fall we decided to give it a try the following day, great place for a short up hill walk, only comment is they have tarmacked near to the end of it and in winter with snow it would have been far better leaving it to be a loose stoned path. Great views over towards Harrogate and... More

What is not to like. Amazing Yorkshire scenery, an old smelting mill to read about our rich industrial heritage, a short but bracing walk to the top of the hill and a cool modern sculpture to get lost in and climb about on ... with views of a working quarry. For free. (There's even that Yorkshire sensibility!)

We popped in to Coldstone Cut when passing Toft gate line kiln. It's not too well known but boy is it a special modern Sculpture (Yorkshire's Largest) Me and my wife popped in on a day off. It was foggy,wet and windy but the did not ruin the visit.Quite the opposite. Hike up the hill and see the bike .... More

Superb. A must. Can be enjoyed in half an hour so make sure its part of your Dales Agenda! Just hold onto your hat/glasses if a wee breazy.

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

Worth a stop off between places. It's a bit of a hill walk up to the Cold Stone Cut.. Once you make it to the top you are hit with a wall of wind - You will need your wigs held on tight! It's a bit of a maze kind of structure ending up at one of three viewing areas.... More
