Wellow is a few miles south of Bath. There is no street lighting. By car, just put BA2 8QB in the Sat Nav or follow signs from behind Bath Odd Down Park and Ride, from the road by the Audi and Mercedes-Benz dealerships on the Peasedown St John bypass, or from Hinton Charterhouse . The way to the public car park is clearly signposted off the east/west road through the village, down a short lane (‘Station Road’) that turns right and then becomes rutted, opening up into a large, flat, grassy park. We generally set up our telescopes by the hedge that runs along the northern edge.
If you come to join us after the start of the observing session, please dim your car lights as soon as you can!
