Nottingham Astronomical Society Observatory

Cottgrave, Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, NG12 3BN

The Nottingham Astronomical Society Observatory is located on private property leased from Severn Trent Water near the village of Cotgrave in Nottinghamshire. A project to refurbish the facility started in 2021 and saw a large Schmidt Cassegrain telescope installed in the observatory dome. The group has plans to develop the site further, building a warm room and car parking facilities.

Nottingham Astronomical Society Observatory is a private location and is only accessible out of normal hours for stargazing by prior arrangement or when public events are scheduled.
