Based above Todmorden in the North West of England, we have facilities and on-site equipment for both members and visitors. The Observatory is open to the public every Saturday evening from 7.30pm until late throughout the year. During the Summer months of June, July and August, we are also open afternoons from 3pm till 6pm ( except Sundays) for solar viewing and demonstration of the Camera Obscura. Visitors are advised to wrap up warmly, with sensible footwear, as the site can get very cold at any time of year and bring a torch to help find the way. There is no formal charge for visitors, but a small donation would be appreciated ( we suggest £2 per person, £1 for children and concessions), though further donations are always welcome! Group visits can also be made at other times by arrangement. Please park on the lower plateau, next to the caravans. Access for unloading of telescopes etc. and disabled parking is available at the highest point of the site, next to the main dome. Individual membership of the Centre is £15 per year and £30 per year for a family membership. Membership permits the use of the Centre's equipment as appropriate, unlimited technical and instructional advice, access to the members level of the website, the library and priority entrance to special events. If you live a distance away from the centre why not become a `friend of the Astronomy Centre ` for £5.00 per year.

Calderdale is the southernmost of the Yorkshire Dales and covers part of the South Pennines area of beautiful river valleys, moorland and hill country. Calderdale is not as well-known as its Northern neighbours as it does not fall within the boundaries of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Yet Calderdale has a tremendous amount to offer visitors, time after time.

Once you're here, you'll quickly realise there's a lot more to Calderdale than you can discover in a single day. There are plenty of hotels suitable for groups that will serve as an ideal base for you to explore our magnificently modest area.
Calderdale also has three friendly visitor information centres that are just a phone call away and who can help to provide you with additional information and inside tips to make your trip a real success, whatever your tastes and budget.
Calderdale offers great value for money and a warm Yorkshire welcome. We look forward to seeing you soon!

We believe that learning through play is fundamental to children’s development and our range of ecologically friendly toys and gifts are designed to gently expand and encourage inquisitive minds whilst simultaneously delighting and amazing the young at heart. Innovative and highly original, our gizmos make great gifts for all ages, providing new and inspirational activities for children, parents and big kids too! They are also an excellent addition to the classroom and are used in colleges and technical training centres. We choose gizmos which are scientific and sustainable, involve educational construction and above all, create fun! Our favourite toys and kits help you ‘do your bit’ by spending time together constructing something new, learning about sustainability and making family memories. Help provide your children and grandchildren with the skills and practical knowledge to equip them for a sustainable future. We have deliberately minimised the use of plastics in our toys and gifts, choosing instead flexible materials, wood and metal. And our range of gizmos and toys includes something for all age ranges and abilities – many at pocket money prices! WE’RE NOT JUST HERE FOR THE BIG THINGS! Although we stock a comprehensive range of bigger toys and gizmos, we also have a whole section dedicated to what we like to call ‘pocket money prices’. Ideally suited for stocking fillers, party bags, reward chart prizes and everyday pocket money presents, this range of tiny treats has something for everyone. Why not pop in and see just what we have to offer – we’re sure you will be amazed at our hidden gems!
