    Lovell Radio Telescope, Jodrell Bank

    R.I.P Sir Bernard Lovell - (1913 - 2012)


    On a clear day I can see the Lovell Space Telescope & the Runcorn Bridge from up in t'hills, both of which I have thought "one day"

    Being that I've already climbed the bridge I thought it would be rude not to finally take a look at this bloody big dish as well..

    This place has it all; Dodging cctv & alarms, some sketchy buildering..

    ..oh and wandering around a brightly lit compound like an xmas tree in full view of the observatory with secca wandering about made this all the more fun :thumb

    (That's right, the structure has been belled up and locked down since the early days of people hitting it)

    A couple of trips here with Ninja boy with some fail thrown in eventually gave way to us climbing onto and up this beast (Which in the end was cut short)


    History Shizzle:

    Shot handheld in freezing conditions, after much lurking our target was in sight


    Wandering about the brightly lit compound and playing cat & mouse with security who were uncomfortably close on more than one occasion

    (The dish is constantly on the move, hence the motion blur)


    With the odds stacked against us we went for it and climbed up the stucture avoiding the alarms, we stopped for a quick piccy in case we were busted

    We decided to keep going but it was hard going, our hands were freezing cold and somehow we must have tripped one of the motion sensors as suddenly there was activity at the far side of the compound


    Not wanting to hang about we promptly got the fuck down as quick as humanly possible and bailed

    Getting caught was never an option here!​
