We are blessed with some beautiful night skies over Hallbankgate - probably because we have very little light pollution. Why don't you come and see for yourself when the RSPB hold two events soon to look at the night sky?
The sky will be even better up at the reserve and if it is clear it will be amazing. We have regular sightings of the Milky Way and the Northern Lights have been seen from here.
Have a look at the RSPB's website for more information.www.rspb.org.uk and then click on the Geltsdale reserve.
Of course if you do visit be sure to come and stay at the Old School House for a warm and cosy welcome!
