Jodrell Bank radio telescope

It is an engineering marvel, built on a shoestring, immediately recognisable - and still working after 50 years!

Driving by Jodrell Bank was always the time to wake up on the long journey to my grandparents in nearby Mobberley. The first to spot it through the trees and over the hedges would win a 'shiny shilling'.

The iconic Lovell Telescope, a Grade 1 listed structure, is a unique feature of the English landscape. Part of the University of Manchester's Department of Physics and Astronomy, it is also a world-class research facility that links together the work of radio-astronomers worldwide.
