Welcome to the Matlock and Darley Dale Observing group website. We hope you are here because you have a passion for astronomy!
We are a small group of sky-watching enthusiasts who meet on the first Wednesday of each month at The Plough Inn at Two Dales. Our abilities and experiences range from the curious to the obsessed and we welcome all , young and old! Whether you are just slightly interested in having a look through a telescope or would like help setting up your own equipment…or just want to come along for the company! Astronomy can be a lonely experience with just yourself and your kit, whether it be your eyes, binoculars or a scope. We like to get together to share that experience…and when the weather is against us…our meeting place is just about perfect to share a drink and have a social gathering!
So what are you waiting for? Come along to our next meeting…or just have a wander through our website to see what we have been up to.
