    Very nice.



    I'd like to have seen one or two colour ones also just so we can get a true idea of what it really looked like. The B/W does seem to suit it really well though.
    Why go through a door when there's a perfectly good window?

    I love Bletchley, without the history it would be a nice explore but to know that Alan Turing walked the corridors and helped us win the war from here makes it outstanding

    A great piece of history, and so great that it's been saved.

    My old music teacher would have loved these images. She could describe Bletchley Park in such detail, even when in her 80s. This was the place where WW2 was won with the cracking of Enigma - how sad, (but increasingly typical) that places and things that have so much meaning are given such short shrift by those who should have some respect for the past. I see here a parralel with HSM Ark Royal. This ship is being torn apart and scrapped with no sense of history or respect. What a shame.
    A glooming peace, this morning with it brings. The sun for sorrow dare not show its face
