Radio Farm, Scotland - June 2015

Recommended Posts

Another boring topic from my venture up North.

Nothing much to say about this wee derp farm, spotted it from the main road, a quick de-tour and few photos later, you have this!

      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

      Just a crappy stripped out church, but something about it would tickle the nipples of a god fearing nun.
       
      But I liked it enough to take a few pictures anyway.
       

       

       

       

       
      I 'm almost sorry you had to look this report, I am scraping the barrel, but I'm not really sorry

      Hello, another from my long long long list of shitty cottages I have to post up on here tp convert you to the deeply weird realm of cottaging!

      Found this almost my accident whilst exploring with a couple friends, after walking what felt like miles through small forests, over streams, up and down heather marsh lands and over several feilds to visit some of the shittest derps you could probably imagine, I spotted this on the way down the wild hills.  We took a chance as it was on a live farm, found the door open and decided to pop in for 30 mins and grabbed some pics.  We all felt a bit uneasy as it was a live farm and decided to get out quickly, just as we were closing the door a car came down the drive way, and we bolted like a mini heard of highland cows stampeding our way down the side of the house and over a few fences to safety.  Never been back, but one day I will!

      Been a little while since I posted anything.

      Derp Cottage, located in what some consider Miserable Scotland, visited on a windy and cold day, but it had rather nice views.
