The Caradon Observatory
One of the main aims of the Caradon Observatory will be
to inspire school children from primary school onwards to become interested
in the sciences, mathematics and engineering by studying our incredible
solar system and of the vastness of the Universe. We believe that this
could promote a life long interest which will translate into more pupils
obtaining qualifications in science and engineering and pursuing careers
in these disciplines. The facilities will also be available for mature
astronomers and astronomical societies etc. The Observatory will eventually
be equipped with the latest hi-tech telescopes and associated cameras
together with all the computer hardware and software that is needed to
produce high quality images from space.
There are several villages surrounding the lodges. The village of Minions nestles on the edge of Bodmin Moor close to the famous Hurlers stone circle and Cheesewring. A pub, village store and tea room completes this moorland gem. Upton Cross and Rilla Mill Complete a trio of villages each with their own charm. Upton Cross has a post office and stores and a country pub. It also boasts the Sterts open air theatre with various arts and entertainment.
