Observatory for sale

The UK's Natural Environment Research Council is still seeking buyers for its Bidston Observatory site.

The property website Rightmove lists the observatory with a deadline of 30 November.

NERC acquired the freehold for the observatory from the University of Liverpool in 1969. In 2006, when NERC no longer required the site for its original purpose, it was offered back to the university. However, the university declined and NERC has since been unsuccessful in its efforts to find a buyer.
