In light of public health concerns, the observatory will remain closed for public open evenings and group visits to guard against the spread of COVID-19. We anticipate that this will be for the next few weeks until the situation becomes clearer.
Please accept our apologies.
In the light of the ongoing threat of Corona Virus, the NLO in consultation with our colleagues at Colyton Grammar School have decided to postpone the event from 7th March until later in the year. We are very sorry to have to do this, but felt it was in the best interest to all in our community.
