The Spaceguard Centre is a working astronomical observatory in a stunning location above Knighton on the borders of Powys, Shropshire and Herefordshire.
The Centre is committed to tracking Near Earth Objects that could potentially hit the Earth as part of an international project. Asteroids hit the Earth more often then people would like to believe, and they regularly pass very close to us. The Spaceguard Centre offers the opportunity for people to come and visit to find out about the possibility of a real “Deep Impact”, and what we can do to prevent one. The guided tour will take you around all the facilities at the Spaceguard Centre including a fully equipped observatory with a 13‑inch telescope, and a 14”, robotic telescope, both of which are capable of tracking objects that could be a threat to earth. The Spaceguard Centre also has its own Planetarium. With more fascinating exhibits such as Meteorites and samples from impact craters the Spaceguard Centre is a truly fascinating place to visit.

Located in Knighton’s main street, the Museum is run entirely by volunteers and reflects the social history of the area. Most exhibits have been either donated or lent by local people and illustrate the varied history of this border town from the drovers to the flannel weavers, from trade to agriculture. Many of our exhibits may be handled by visitors making the whole experience both child-friendly and memory-provoking for adults.
Chat with our resident weaver, role-play teacher or pupil, wonder at the sheer weight of an early mobile phone, spend some time reading the Beano or simply indulge yourself with that smell known as Carbolic Soap!
