UK Bletchley Park 05/17

Recommended Posts

Bletchley Park was the central site for British Code-breakers During World War Two.

D Block - Enigma Work

G Block - Traffic Analysis & Deception Operations.

Most German messages decrypted at Bletchley were produced by one or another Enigma Cipher machine but an important minority were produced by the even more complicated twelve-rotor Lorenz SZ42 on-line Teleprinter Cipher Machine.

Well we planed this in advance as we were unsure how easy it would be to get onto but to our suprise we walked right on and into G block no security that we saw. 

We had a good mooch around taking lots of photos and Dan done vidoeing as always.

We started in G Block and then went onto another building.

Well this place was out of this world so much history lots of records found that should have been destroyed but never seemed to be two copy's of the Enigma machine  lots of old tech in the place too. We could not belive our eyes or luck. So much more to see there but we had to leave due to time. But we will be going back again.

Please Enjoy.

That paperwork's cool, it's a pretty amazing place. Still confused as to why they don't do something with all the equipment in here

So much to see in some parts of this with all that equipment dotted around, I could've literally spent all day in there looking at stuff. Same as @The_Raw says; there seems to be stuff in there that really should be in the museum next door

You have to remember the museum next door is primarily concerned with the place as it was used in WWII for the code breaking, that's what it focusses on. Most of the equipment that's left in these buildings has no relation to that activity and is much much newer. It's still interesting, but I can understand why it's left there.

Yeah i know the story of the place but as much as there's a lot of general old telecommunications equipment, there's also some old decrypting devices stacked up in one of the rooms that is quite near the museum side. Perhaps they're gradually coming in that door and grabbing a piece to refurb or wipe clean for their displays? There's definitely some relevant shit in there which seems to have been discarded, but i'm guessing with a site this size they have enough to fill their displays for now :)

      Hey everyone, so I'm pretty sure everyone's heard of this place so i dont really need to explain much about it, but if you haven't, below is a brief history of Denbigh Mental Asylum.
       
      Grade 2 Listed building.
      Built work started in 1844
      Building work completed in 1848
       
      Built to house up to 200 patients with psychiatric illnesses. In the early 1900's it housed 1537 patients (Approx).
      The hospital had its own farm and gas works.
      Planned for closure by Enoch Powellin the 1960's, however it only began closing in sections between 1991-1995.

       
      Nurses Quarters:

       
       

       
      This is genuinely one of the best condition buildings that i have ever explored.

       
       

       
      Most of the lower floor windows were covered in either ivy or thick vines, so it got quite dark in some sections of the building.

       
      Now for the hospital itself, my personal favorite photos:

      Snowdown was the deepest colliery in Kent reaching well over 3,000 ft (915 metres). It was also the hottest and most humid pit in Kent and was given the name 'Dante's Inferno' by the miners. Regarded by many as the worst pit to work at in Britain, most Snowdown miners worked naked because clothes became too uncomfortable. The miners could consume around 24 pints (14 lires) of water in an 8-hour shift. There were frequent cases of heat stroke.

      Snowdown closed in 1987

      Established in 1926, G.L. Murphy was a family run business and supplied bespoke machinery to the tanning industry, as well as building rag cutting and cable stripping machinery.  The company also provide refurbishment and renovation works for various machinery types.

      Built in 1871 but had been refurbished at some point.
       Now, I don't do heights.. So I was chuffed to see my mate practically run towards it in excitement and go first. It was pretty high and the grated floor was not ideal if you wanted to avoid looking down. 
      The tower probably stands around 40-50 ft but exact measurements are unknown at this point.
      Apart from the odd clanging of metal under our footsteps and how wobbly it was, it was a good first climb like this for me!
      Got some snaps as usual, enjoy!
