Both Aunt Phoebe’s Recreation Ground and the Rollright Stones are designated Dark Sky Discovery Sites. The village is also within the Cotswolds National Landscape (formerly the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty), which recognises the value and importance of Dark Skies within our area.
It’s time for the Council for the Protection of Rural England’s annual Star Count, which everyone is invited to join. The information gathered helps in evaluating the health of existing Dark Sky areas, and in monitoring the extent of areas affected by light pollution.
