Mansfield and Sutton Astronomical Society recently purchased a disused Victorian Reservoir adjacent to their existing observatory not far from our Huthwaite Office. Their goal is to convert this underground reservoir into a planetarium.
MSAS provide tours and talks for many youth groups and schools in the Mansfield Area. The planetarium will provide an invaluable additional resource.
To help achieve this goal Aspin offered to provide an initial site investigation which was successfully carried out in September 2015. During November, our structural specialists carried out a structural investigation which required entry to the reservoir.
MSAS would like to thank Aspin Group and the staff involved for all their hard work.
