Spotted this on TripAdvisor and decided to give it a go on New Year's Eve. Checked the weather forecast which suggested 40mph winds! Thankfully the wind blew itself out overnight so we headed out. Now I have MS and struggle to walk on uneven ground...More

I had no idea what to expect from The Coldstones Cut as we spotted it on Google Maps whilst staying in Pateley Bridge. Yes, the artwork is pretty cool, but the most exciting part of the whole installation is the view over the limestone quarry...More

A short, steep walk up to the site, but well worth the exertion. The views were great, not just for the spectacular views of Nidderdale, but of the quarry, which is huge. Lots of interesting information there to read on the various notices but the...More

Fascinating place to visit. We were on a walk when we visited this place, but there is a car park nearby as we did see people walking the short distance to get to the Coldstones Cut. This is a huge construction and something you don't...More
