Arthur at Goonhilly

the Arthur satellite dish at Goonhilly in Cornwall

Arthur (Antenna One) is a satellite dish at the Goonhilly Satellite Earth Station in Cornwall. The dish measures 26m and relayed telephone calls and live TV from the Telstar satellite.

The site has a visitor centre with an exhibition of the history of satellite communications. Unfortunately the Goonhilly visitor centre closed last week until further notice. :-(
