Welcome to the Astronomy Centre Website, we hope you find your visit useful, informative & enjoyable.

We are now in the process of adding lots of new information about the present state of progress, including the construction of the proposed 42" telescope. This has been compromised by the installation of Wind Turbines which will effectively ring fence the Astronomy Centre.

A member of the Management Team is in the process of negotiations with the Companies involved to resolve some compromise about this unfortunate state of affairs.

Upcoming information

  • New equipment/ facilities 
  • Car park / dome renovation
  • Wind Farm operator discussions
  • Main dome upgrades
  • RemScope - a remote control imaging source.
