Stonehaugh Stargazing Pavilion & Observatory

Stonehaugh, Hexham, NE48 3DZ

Stonehaugh Stargazing Pavilion is a free to access stargazing location in Kielder Forest and at the heart of the Northumberland International Dark Sky Park. Designed by students from Newcastle University the pavilion was opened in July 2014. It is frequently used as a stargazing venue by Stonehaugh Astronomy who, in 2020, built a small observatory at the location to compliment their events which they organise in the nearby Stonehaugh Community Hall.
