HOW TO GET HERE
The SKAO HQ is based on the Jodrell Bank Observatory grounds, but the SKAO entrance is different to the visitor centre, so ignore the brown “Jodrell Bank” signs.
We are directly off the main A535, there are a signs quoting ‘SKA Staff Access’ which indicate the SKAO entrance, which is located within the 30mph Jodrell Bank zone.
Proceed up the lane to the barrier. Press the buzzer, for assistance/access. Go diagonally through the ‘compound’, and through a white gate, and follow the road, in a clockwise direction, around the green. You will see the sign directing you into the SKAO GLOBAL HEADQUARTERS car park, located on your left handside.
Please ensure that you sign in and out with reception.
