Dark Skies visit to Lime Tree Observatory, Grewelthorpe

05 Oct 2021

Location: Grewelthorpe, Ripon


Following the very successful evening talk on Dark Skies by Richard Darn in February, we are planning two trips to Dark Skies areas. The first will be a return visit to Lime Tree Farm astronomical observatory, which PLACE visited in October 2017. Meet at 7.00pm at Lime Tree Farm, wearing warm clothing and stout footwear and bringing binoculars, if you have them.

Lime Tree Farm is on Hutts Lane, Grewelthorpe. From Ripon, take the Kirkby Road to Grewelthorpe. Fork left on reaching the village, then right at the next junction and left at the next one. Turn right on to Hutts Lane, following the signs and guiding red lights. The farm is c.1km along the lane (SE 218769). Numbers are limited to 15 people. Cost: £10.00 per person.
