Welcome to the Cleethorpes & District Astronomical Society, founded in 1969 and located at Beacon Hill Allotments, Cleethorpes. We have our own lecture room and observatory containing a 16 inch Newtonian/Cassegrain telescope as well as other smaller telescopes. Regular monthly meetings are held on the first Wednesday of every month with invited speakers who give talks on a range of astronomical topics. We also run beginners' sessions from September to May once a month on Friday evenings which are open to everyone.
