We took our visitors up to Coldstones Cut for a stroll. The view is amazing, the information boards are easy enough for people of all ages to read. We had a lovely time and would recommend it to everyone.

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.

I have not been there at night time and would not recommend it anyway as the car park is about 750 metres from the entrance and no lighting across the rather rough and steep path

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.
