Universities Research Reactor

Scope and Content

Taken from the brochure created by the department: "The Universities Research Reactor site was established in 1964 to provide a research and teaching unit in the nuclear sciences for students from Universities of Manchester and Liverpool. Since then the activities of the centre have been extended to provide facilities for other research organisations, teaching establishments and industrial laboratories in the North of England and the Midlands. The reactor is located on a large University site north of the U.K.A.E.A.'s Headquarters at Risley, near Warrington."
