    I was very lucky to start this year with a delightful visit to the historic Bletchley Park to see what was lest and as someone who loves a bit of peeling paint it was a rather pleasant day. Many of the below pictures are from G Block, in the evening I did finally gain access to the wonderful D block but as a friend who I was with couldn't gain access as well I didn't spend long in there and so only got a few pictures; because of that a re-visit is on the cards.

    History

    Bletchley started as a manor house built in 1711; the name Bletchley Park was given to the house by Samuel Lipscomb Seckham in 1877.

    In May 1938 Admiral Sir Hugh Sinclair, head of the Secret Intelligence Service (SIS or MI6) bought the mansion and 58 acres for use by GC&CS ( Government Code and Cypher School) and SIS in the event of war. The code breakers at Bletchley Park regularly penetrated the secret communications of the Axis Powers – most importantly the German Enigma and Lorenz ciphers.

    The official historian of World War II British Intelligence has written that the "Ultra" intelligence produced at Bletchley shortened the war by two to four years, and that without it the outcome of the war would have been uncertain.

    Great report! I've been here legitimately and was just itching to climb into some of the abandoned huts.

    Those abandoned bits are dotted all over the site, just start looking in windows while you're walking around and you'll soon find some of them.
