Corona Virus Update

We are planning on opening the Observatory to visitors with a degree of caution, and the hides to 'Friends of DBOT' from May 17th., The relevant conditions state that the 'Rue of 6' and face coverings are also mandatory in the hides.

Please forward any Dungeness recording area records to the Warden.
You can still support the Obs by using Give as you Live or Amazon Smile when shopping online.

Thank You for your understanding in these difficult times.
