North Devon Astronomical Society 

We meet at 19:45 on the first Wednesday of every month at the Methodist Church Hall, Rhododendron Avenue, Sticklepath, Barnstaple, EX31 2DJ.


While Covid levels remain high, we are continuing to ask that a face mask to be worn to protect all attendees, some of whom have been in self-isolation.


If you live in the North Devon area and would like to know more about the Society, you are welcome to attend two of our meetings for free as a visitor. You can then find out about the Society's activities, listen to talks and meet members, who will be happy to answer questions and to chat to you informally about the benefits of joining the North Devon Astronomical Society.
