Abstract

The Torquay Boys’ Grammar School Observatory is part of Torquay Boys’ Grammar School in Devon. Torquay lies in a small, east-facing bay in the southwest of England, at about 50.45° north, and 3.5° west of the Greenwich meridian. The observatory is well inland, situated close to the Devon countryside. Its two main buildings are on ground that is sloping upwards away from the school and so we have a clear view over the top.
