Jodrell Bank Observatory made Unesco World Heritage site
Jodrell Bank Observatory has been made a Unesco World Heritage site.
The site, famous for its iconic telescope named after Sir Bernard Lovell, began scientific research in 1945 when the physicist used radio waves - rather than visible light - to understand the universe.
It joins other iconic sites, such as the ancient Iraqi city of Babylon, on the prestigious list.
