Here in deepest darkest Devon, the stars shine bright and clear.
The Lee Abbey Estate is widely recognized as a dark sky reserve and we have all the gear to take you as close to the stars as we can. When you come, as long as the clouds part for long enough, you’ll easily see the Milky Way, along with well-known constellations like Orion’s belt, and you can even see more distant planets and galaxies. Meteor showers and shooting stars are also regular show stoppers.
Here are a collection of photos taken by community members of the night sky (photos 2 to 8 were taken by Michael Garth in 2020).
