The new campus observatory will provide hands-on experience of operating telescopes for our astrophysics students, as well as serving as a showcase University facility that could be used for outreach, public engagement activities, and local participation. The building work at Cryfield Barn started last month. Progress is easily visible from the adjacent footpath (type 'Sports Pavillion' into the interactive campus mapLink opens in a new window to find Cryfield Barns, which are opposite the Sports Pavillion).
Progess update, March 2022
Further updates will be posted throughout the duration of the build.
