Recipient Org: Description To provide access to members of the public, and schools to the Charterhouse Observatory which is situated on the Charterhouse Centre grounds. We provide astronomy outreach and education and are partnered with local astronomy groups, and a national network of universities. We wish to be able to expand the levels of access we can give, and increase the engagement we can provide. We regularly give educational lectures, and hand on practical evenings to the public and schools which includes the use of the 18 inch Charterhouse Telescope which we have spend the last 18 months renovating, to make it one of the best and largest telescopes in the south west.
