  • Such an impressive over-engineered structure. Visit on bank holiday when you may be able to walk over the top.
  • Walk up the stairs and over it. Hold on tight. Avoid in wind.
  • Must revisit in April to walk over the top and see it all in operation.
  • OMG IT'S SO BIG
  • Absolutely stunning piece of engineering. Turned up on my motorbike they looked after my helmet, tank bag, and jacket with no hesitation. The volunteers were so knowledgeable and real enthusiasts, able to answer every question. Walked over the top fantastic views, visited the “Engine House” Paul was a delight very chatty. Then the “Gondola” ride back. Will defiantly be doing that again. Thank you so much
