After a light lunch we went to the Institute of Astronomy for a private tour led by Mark, the very helpful librarian. This establishment has a long history dating back to the 1830s. We were particularly interested in one James Challis (1803-1882) who achieved the dual roles of Plumian Professor and Director of the Cambridge Observatory.
