TL4358 : Floodlit Hockey

Floodlit Hockey
Floodlit Hockey
The Wilberforce Road sports site has finally got floodlights, making a big difference to hockey and athletics training in winter. See TL4358 : Cambridge University hockey pitch. The astronomy department opposed the plan (which dates back to at least 1999) due to the increase in light pollution. Presumably they have either given up (the increased development at the West Cambridge site is probably a bigger issue) or reached an agreement that the lights are switched off at particular times.
