    Default Bletchley Park G Block - Dec 13


    Visited this historic WW2 Code Breaking and Intelligence Icon with Miz Firestorm as I wanted to see it before it becomes yet another hideous housing estate, luckily we were informed today by a really helpful employee there that both of the last derelict blocks (D and G I think) have now had a preservation order placed on them are to be saved and restored..

    an excellent full history can be found on the web and I feel I could not do it the justice it deserves

    On with the pictures, I feel Black and White was appropriate..





































































    If there is a fence round it then it must be worth looking at !

    Cracker .... (bit of a Crimbo link)... of a report that. I used to dispense the meds of a guy who worked there. Sadly now not with us, he used to tell me his stories. He met his wife there. Love @ Bletchley Park

    Some great shots, when i worked as a civil servant on one of are site's which we new as main site it had a corridor which was half a mile long with small offices hear and there and a pub at the end. lol it was built around the same time as Bletchley it was know as the mile walk coz that's what it felt like first thing in the morning it was all knock'd down to make room for new office block's.
