Breckland Astronomical Society
is based in the village of Great Ellingham in Norfolk. The society, founded in 1993, has its own observatory equipped with a 20″ reflector, along with a number of smaller telescopes for the use of members. The Society holds regular monthly meetings featuring talks given by visiting speakers or by the society’s own members. There are regular observing nights for members interested in either visual observing or astrophotography.
Please have a look around the site. You’ll find information about the history of the society, our meetings schedule for the year, and plenty of astrophotos taken by BAS members. If you wish to come along to a meeting or observing session, or join the society, you’ll find contact details here.

Dark Sky Discovery

Our observatory in Great Ellingham is now part of the Dark Sky Discovery network – it’s been recognised as a Dark Sky Discovery site, Milky Way class!

Haw Wood Farm, the location for our Star Parties, is also a Milky Way class Dark Sky Discovery site!
