In 2013 the club was approached by the North Pennines AONB with a view to becoming a dark sky site. It was launched on 7th December with a talk in the clubhouse. Sadly the weather prevented us from seeing any stars. The next talk is scheduled for September 2014 but the site is always open for those with telescopes to come and make the most of the darkness. Check out the webcam before you come to see the latest conditions. More information can be found at the North Pennines Stargazing page.
