Sherwood Observatory is an astronomical observatory which is owned and operated by Mansfield and Sutton Astronomical Society.  Its primary aim is to engage in public outreach in astronomy and, in particular, through that to encourage young people to follow STEM career paths.  With demand for visits currently outstripping  supply the Society acquired a redundant underground Victorian reservoir situated in land adjacent to the observatory and has an ambitious plan to convert this into a visitor centre and planetarium.  The presentation will cover a brief history of the observatory and its current activities before moving on to describe the plans and current status of proposals for the visitor centre and planetarium.
