Hauxley Nature Reserve and Observatory

Hauxley Nature Reserve and Observatory

This coastal nature reserve benefits significantly from being away from the bright city lights with skies likely being far better than light pollution maps suggest. Northumberland Astronomical Society host their regular society meetings in the visitor centre and observe from their nearby observatory!
