Default Jodrell Bank Observatory has been declared a Unesco World Heritage Site

Quote:
It has been at the forefront of astronomical research since its inception in 1945 and tracked US and Russian craft during the space race.
The site in Cheshire is part of the University of Manchester. It is dominated by the landmark Lovell Telescope.
It joins the ancient Iraqi city of Babylon and other locations that have been added to the prestigious list.
Well, hurrah for us. Great bit of engineering and still going strong.
Probably end up on a stamp sometime.
