Mills Observatory is the only full-time public observatory in UK. Built in 1935, the observatory is classically styled in sandstone and has a distinctive 7m dome, which houses a Victorian refracting telescope, a small planetarium, and display areas. The dome is one of only two in the world made from papier-mâché, the other identical dome is situated in Canada, at the David Dunlap Observatory, Toronto.
