"GOLDEE OBSERVATORY" Godlee Observatory Tip by WAHEEDASLAM

Godlee Observatory, Manchester: 2 reviews and 2 photos

  GOLDEE OBSERVATORY..MANCHESTER
by WAHEEDASLAM
 
 

The little-visiited observatory is one of the most intresting places in all of Manchester. Built in 1902 , it is fully functioning observatory with its original Grubb Telescope in place; even the rope and wheels that move the telescope are original. Not only can you glimpse the heavens(if the weather allows) , but the views of the city from the balcony are exceptional.
