Jodrell Bank has been named as the winner of the BBC's online competition to find the UK's greatest 'Unsung Landmark'. The contest asked visitors to the BBC website to choose their favourite from eight landmarks nominated by the public and selected from an earlier regional round of voting.

The Jodrell Bank Observatory is located near Goostrey, Cheshire in the north west of England, and was
established in 1945 by Dr. Bernard Lovell.
Jodrell Bank Observatory is the home of the Multi-Element Radio Linked Interferometer Network (MERLIN), a National Facility run by the University of Manchester on behalf of PPARC.
