Do you often find yourself gazing skywards, the team at the observatory are the proud owners of telescopes that will transport you through the galaxy to the stars beyond. Officially opened by the late Sir Patrick Moore in the 70s the team aim to educate and encourage anyone who has a love for all things luminous.
