THE ALLEN VALLEYS' OWN OBSERVATORY
If you live in, or close to, the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and UNESCO Global Geopark, this facility situated in the Allen Valley enables you to take advantage of being in a recognised dark skies area. The facility can be hired for events to study the night sky and gaze at our remarkable local 'darkscape'.
FORMER SUPPORTING MEMBERS
Due to the unsupportable cost of insurance, the Observatory is regrettably no longer able to continue its Supporting Membership scheme with free observing events. We would like to thank previous Members for their support over the last two years. Going forward the Observatory is going to be reliant on external organisers booking facilities to run their own paid-for events which will be listed in the Observatory's events calendar.
