First Light receives planning permission

Joderal Bank Observatory has received planning permission for its project 'First Light'. The project not only sees the conservation and restoration of both the Grade-1 listed Lovell Telescope and the original Jodrell Bank Control Building but also a brand new exhibition space.

This is a fantastic project which celebrates the scientific heritage and also an enhanced educational programme.
