Bidston Observatory
Bidston Observatory
Long associated with weather and tidal research, the observatory was relocated from Liverpool's Waterloo Dock in 1866. Bidston Observatory is faced with sandstone excavated from the site. There was an equatorial telescope in the west dome, which was used mainly for the observation of comets, and a transit telescope in the east dome, which was regularly used for the determination of time from the stars. These telescopes are now in Liverpool Museum.
