Prof Garrington poses question at Goostrey AGM

Jodrell Bank’s Director Professor Simon Garrington posed a question to Goostrey residents last night.  During a fascinating insight into the world class research at the Jodrell Bank Observatory Professor Garrington asked residents if anyone remembered the whereabouts of a mobile telescope that had been sited on New Platt Lane in around 1958 and the early sixties.
