Building Work

July 2008 update:

The Fry floor, kitchen, sitting area, Control Room and the Toilets have all been successfully refurbished and provide much improved and more spacious facilities for students and staff.

The Wilson Building was completely stripped and has been repainted, and new windows fitted. The driveway area has been surfaced with fresh shingle.

The Radcliffe Foyer had a makeover and is now used as an area for Theodolite training, a waiting area for visitor groups and exhibition space where we now display some historical equipment previously in use at the Observatory. This includes the spectrograph used by Miss E. M. Peachey (who was later known as Dr E. M. Burbidge) during the 1940s.

The Observatory is now fully open for teaching and public visits.
