In recognition of its international, historic, and scientific significance, in January 2018 Jodrell Bank was proposed to UNESCO as the UK Government’s next candidate for UNESCO World Heritage Site inscription. The nomination dossier will be reviewed by UNESCO in 2018/19 and the World Heritage Committee will announce its decision on the nomination in July 2019.
If Jodrell Bank is inscribed on the World Heritage list, it will showcase the rich scientific heritage of the site on an international stage and signify the UK’s long standing track record in world leading science research. It would represent an enormous accolade not only for Jodrell Bank, but also for Cheshire, the North and the UK as a whole.
Nomination would acknowledge Jodrell Bank’s tremendous scientific achievements and its role in achieving a transformational understanding of the universe: placing it on an equal footing with the likes of Stonehenge and the Taj Mahal.
