    Default Mullard..Cambridgeshire


    I first visited this place about four yrs ago,and always fancied a revisit.so whilst me and man gone wrong were down south we could see it was going to be a decent sunset so we made our way there to get there just in time for the lovely sunset.these dishes are situated on a part live site.this section has not been used for quite a number of years.they are placed on a long set of rail lines,for moving up and down.i think these were used for tracking the weather,but not totally sure.i heard the track is nearly a mile long.it was a nice relaxed visit.although it got very cold.























































    I like to go where others fear to tread.

    Don't worry about security until you've been caught.

    Nice pictures!
    The 1 Mile telescope is actually an 800m long track. The aim was to move the dishes and observe radio sources (Stars and other astronomical sources) using aperture synthesis interferometry. The telescope was de-commissioned as new techniques using telescopes many miles apart were more sensitive and gave better results.

    Fantastic set mate, caught it just at the right time.
    I remember having a game of cat and mouse last time I was here.
