Roseland Observatory is located within the Truro High School for Girls campus, awarded the best Small Independent School in the country.
Presentations are given in the Astronomy Hub, and the nearby Willow Field offers an ideal place to set up telescopes.
Visiting the observatory is by prior arrangement only. Please contact the Observatory Director, Brian Sheen, directly (and not the school).
As of 25/05/21, the observatory is closed to the public due to the coronavirus pandemic — please check back after the Summer for updates.
