Lime Tree Observatory

The Lime Tree Observatory was opened to the Public in 2016 and hosts astronomical events. The main instrument in the observatory is a 24 inch (600mm) reflecting telescope, however this is now 50 years old and is on the verge of retirement.  We have a range of smaller amateur telescope that provide excellent views of the night sky.

The observatory is open for pre-arranged public events and private group bookings only. It is not open all the time.
