    Default Bletchley G-block, May 2012


    Thanks to Northern_Ninja for finding this. What can I say? Stripped bare. Not really much to write home about.

    Open: October 1943
    Closed: 1991/92

    After being completed in 1943; the G-block at Bletchley Park is more than likely the final wartime building to be constructed.

    The G-Block was built as an extension to the F-Block. The building has a reinforced concrete frame, with steel supports in the two-storey section. The building is formed of two self contained but intercommunicating elements.

    These elements include a single storey complex of five spurs to the west, and a two storey complex of three spurs forming a U-shape to the East.



    The Abwehr Enigma was broken here and the successes of the D-Day deception campaigns were monitored.
