Cottgrave, Nottingham, 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.
