Trip to Jodrell Bank radio observatory 4/9/2019

Angella and Alan from RAG took me today to Jodrell Bank. We were accompanied by another of their neighbours and friend, Liam.

Jodrell Bank houses the Lovell Telescope (Mark I) and other radio telescopes and was the brain child of Sir Bernard Lovell.

I remember last visiting the site as part of a RAG trip around 10 years ago and following the planet trail (a scale model of solar system that involves running around trying to find the planets at scale distances from the Mark I telescope) with my son Rhys, who must have been around 6 at the time.

The activities available for visitors have increased significantly since then and more are planned for the future with a new visitor building about to be built.
