Jodrell Bank
At 76 metres in diameter, the Lovell Telescope - to the left in this picture - is the world's 3rd-largest fully-steerable telescope; it began operating in 1957. The smaller dish (The MKII Radio Telescope completed in 1964) can be seen behind and to the right. At the time this photo taken in 1973, the larger telescope was "the Jodrell Mark 1 Radio Telescope"; it was renamed in honour of Sir Bernard Lovell in 1987.
