You can actually see the Lovell Telescope at Jodrell Bank from Lask Edge Road just a few hundred meters from the caravan site.

The Lovell telescope was completed in 1957 and was operational in time to track Sputnik.

There is also a music festival held every year where images/videos are projected onto the dish.
