Dark, starry skies are one of the most magical sights the countryside can offer. But light pollution means many of us can’t see the stars. Help us reclaim our dark skies. Take part in our #StarCount2019


Darkness at night is one of the things that defines the countryside and makes it so different from towns and cities. But that darkness is disappearing, and with it our view of the stars and planets. Nationally, CPRE has campaigned for many years for protection for our dark skies following survey work which showed that light pollution in the South West increased by 17% between 1993 and 2000.
