Welcome to The Cupola – a brand new visitor centre, which celebrates the heritage and history of Stoney Middleton, and the limestone gorge that was formed over 350 million years ago.

The Cupola incorporates a visitor centre that provides information about Stoney Middleton and surrounding area.

There is also a licensed kitchen and gift shop, with stylish holiday apartments available at the adjacent Rock Mill development.

The styling of the visitor centre was inspired by the former lead smelting cupola, ‘The Lord’s Cupola’, which was in operation on this site in the 18th century.

There is ample free parking and disabled access.
