Failand Observatory

Failand, Near Wraxall, BS8 3US

The Failand Observatory is operated by a welcoming and enthusiastic team of astronomers from Bristol Astronomical Society. The facility is home to the Cyril Swindin telescope — a 12.5 inch reflecting telescope donated by a former member which offers fantastic views of the night skies, this alongside their larger 18″ aperture instrument. The Society regularly opens the facility to the public throughout the observing season.
