      Hello everyone. I was refereed to join the forum from the Facebook group. Im from Ohio, USA and have followed urban exploring for a while. Recently I started getting out and doing it myself. I mainly film videos and post them on youtube but I also take pictures when I'm scouting new areas. I was out the other day scouting an area and took some pictures. I'm looking forward to going back.

      This is a vast semi live site, the research shows that it has around 12 radio telescopes (7 decommisioned and 5 in use) this is only one of them.
      Its called the One Mile Telescope and is made up of several moveable dishes, one of which runs down a track, driven by a train like affair on the dish's platform
      We only touched on a small part of the site today, definitley in need of a re-visit to mooch the rest

      Some History
      The Mullard Radio Astronomy Observatory (MRAO) is home to a number of large radio telescopes.
      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.
      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

      One Mile Telescope
      The One-Mile Telescope at the Mullard Radio Astronomy Observatory (MRAO) is an array of radio telescopes, fully steerable 60-ft-diameter parabolic reflectors operating simultaneously at 1407 MHz and 408 MHz) designed to perform aperture synthesis interferometry, completed by the Radio Astronomy Group of Cambridge University in 1964 "To extend the range of our observations far back in time to the earliest days of the Universe"



      These are the trains that move the middle telescope along the rail




      SK fancied a climb

      The offices




      Time to go home, it had been a very long day

      A revisit was in order with Obscurity,Fortknox0 and frosty and this time Space Invader joined us for a look around
      This is looking back along the Arp (tower hamlets tunnel) just before lagoon caves

      Section leading to the tower hamlets tunnel from the lagoon caves

      Now a few from in lagoon caves


      Toilet block at the end of the caves




      Back into the main tunnel looking towards the bricked wall just before the builders rubbish blockage

      Another toilet block in beaufoy’s caves



      Looking down just after the long crawl over broken shower doors and rotten wood

      Now sealed passage into the workshop area beyond this was obviously still in use

      That was that nice to visit the place again!!
