Scope and Content

Continuation file. During 1978, the Observatory lobbied for an expanded network with new telescope sites and a further dishes were built at Darnhall, close to the existing Mark 3, and at Pickmere on the Tabley estate, which was owned by the University and was close to the Observatory. There is a significant correspondence with the SRC, landowners and local councils about planning permission for these ties. Both telescopes were of the standard E-Systems design used at Knockin. These were completed in 1979.
