Know Before You Go
The Coldstones Cut is situated directly off the B6265, 2 miles outside Pateley Bridge. Plentiful parking is provided just off the road at the Toft Gate Lime Kiln parking (brown sign directs you from the road). From here a 500-meter footpath climbs up the hill to the sculpture. Suitable footwear and clothing should be worn as the location is very exposed and the weather can be harsh and change suddenly. The path is not tarmac but pushchair friendly. Admission is free and the Coldstones Cut is always open to the public.
The Toft Gate lime kiln is situated next to the Coldstones Cut carpark and is definitely worth exploring on your return. The ruined kilns and workings are clearly visible, and there are interesting information boards detailing the operation.
