Dalby Forest Adderstone Field

Dalby Forest Adderstone Field

Dalby, Thornton-le-Dale, Yorkshire, YO18 7LT

Adderstone Field, set in the heart of the Great Dalby Forest, is a fantastic dark sky site, as evidence the photo by Emma Richardson! The Milky Way is readily visible from this venue with the glow from nearby Scarborough mostly hidden behind the trees. This location is the home of the annual StarFest public stargazing event, organised by Scarborough and Ryedale Astronomical Society.


Dalby Forest Adderstone Field is a private location and is only accessible out of normal hours for stargazing by prior arrangement or when public events are scheduled.
