Oh I do love Bletchley Park

Not many sites can claim to have changed the world and kick started the information age as we know it.

The history of the place changed the world as we know it and it's work during WW2 and the cold war were invaluable.

Currently there is work ongoing to help restore the site into a museum (as it should be)

Bletchley Park rejoices in the fact that, until fairly recently, it was probably Britain’s best kept secret. This is because the secrecy surrounding all the activities carried on here during World War Two was of vital importance to our national security and ultimate victory.It was here that an organisation called the Government Code and Cypher School (GC&CS) studied and devised methods to enable the Allied forces to decipher the military codes and ciphers that secured German, Japanese, and other Axis nation’s communications. The result of which was the production of vital intelligence in advance of military operations. Bletchley Park also heralded the birth of the information age with the industrialisation of the code breaking processes enabled by machines such as the Turing/Welchman Bombe, and the world’s first electronic computer, Colossus.
