This is the Jodrell Bank Observatory in Cheshire, England. and the big dish that you can see is the Lovell Telescope. It’s not an early domestic satellite dish!!
The Telescope was constructed in 1955 and was the largest steerable dish telescope in the world at 76.2meters in diameter. Now in 2013 it is the third largest in the world. At least, that is what Wikipedia says!!
I just liked how big it is compared to the neighbouring houses!
