Jodrell Bank is the operations center for the MERLIN (Multi-element Radio-linked Interferometer Network), a dedicated network of radio telescopes in the United Kingdom for long-baseline interferometry with separations of up to 217 km. It will also be the location for the development office for the Square Kilometre Array, which, when built, will be the world's largest radio telescope.
