Due to Lockdown 3 - all rambles are suspended until further notice.
24th Coldstones Cut/Pateley Bridge [Leaders: A: Roy Love, B: Jean Grant, C: Jean Dobbin] Coldstones Cut is a massive piece of rural public art, created by Andrew Sabin, it is located on Greenhow Hill west of Pateley Bridge in Nidderdale and a visit is likely to be a part of the rambles.
