The observatory dates back to the late-18th Century and was originally a corn windmill, benefiting from a tunnel link to St. Vincent's Cave.

It's part of a pleasant green space known as The Downs, which is adjacent to the dramatic Avon Gorge that extends for 1.5 miles and overlooks the River Avon. The downs is home to nearly 30 species of butterflies and is best visited during the warmer months, when you can see its meadows spring to life with beautiful wild flower displays.
