    After passing this on the way home from Cambridge, I could not pass up the urge to have a quick look. After getting caked in mud going the long way around and then feeling stupid after finding an extremely simple way in, it was a good find. Most of the outbuildings were locked but you can easily see what is inside through the windows. Light was diminishing fairly quickly so I had to be quick.

    History

    Mullard Radio Astronomy Observatory is home to a number of large aperture synthesis radio telescopes, including the One-Mile Telescope, 5-km Ryle Telescope, and the Arcminute Microkelvin Imager. Radio interferometry started in the mid-1940s on the outskirts of Cambridge, but with funding from the Science Research Council and a donation of £100,000 from Mullard Limited, construction of the Mullard Radio Astronomy Observatory commenced at Lord's Bridge, a few kilometres to the west of Cambridge and was opened by Sir Edward Victor Appleton on 25 July 1957. This group is now known as the Cavendish Astrophysics Group. (Wikipedia)
