Stargazing at Comer Woods

A look at the night's sky over Comer Woods with help from the Shropshire Astronomical Society.

  • Booking essential
  • Admission applies

Comer Woods is a great place for stargazing due to the darkness.

Shropshire Astronomical Society will bring a selection of telescopes to Comer Woods to allow attendees to look at various aspects of the night sky.

In the event that the weather is poor, an alternative presentation will be held in the barn at Comer Woods.

What is Gift Aid?

Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points.

Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:

  • Gift Aid Admission
  • Standard Admission

If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you a clear choice between the Gift Aid Admission prices and the Standard Admission prices at the admission point. It's entirely up to you which ticket you choose.

Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.

An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below:

  Gift Aid Standard
Amount paid by visitor £11.00 £10.00
Tax refund from Government* £2.75 £0.00
Total received by the National Trust £13.75 £10.00
