I know its been done a few times but I do love a big old satellite dish, popped in for a mooch while in the area, history from Wiki below:

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 (a manufacturer of electron valves).

Construction of the Mullard Radio Astronomy Observatory commenced at
Lord's Bridge,[1] a few kilometres to the west of Cambridge.

The observatory was founded under
Martin Ryle of the Radio-Astronomy Group of the Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge and was opened by Sir Edward Victor Appleton on 25 July 1957. This group is now known as the Cavendish Astrophysics Group
