    Default Bletchley Park Canteen - 2018


    Intro
    The site of the Codebreaker's facility is a partially preserved a museum, although some buildings and blocks are derelict and heavily vandalized. The site had been on our list to explore and the canteen was the main building we wanted to access.

    History
    The history of this site is easy enough to find by searching The Enigma Code on the internet.
    The main purpose of the site was to break the code, which it did, and understand enemy communications in the second world war.
    The canteen was to feed the personnel who worked on the site, surprisingly.

    The Explore
    We, being myself and ExplorerX, headed out to the site reasonably early in the morning. Although, due to deciding to explore on the weekend buses would not be running past 18:00hrs so we had limited time.
    On arrival we circled the canteen and then found an entry. We instantly found our selves in the, heavily vandalized, kitchen.





    Outside the kitchen, was the dining hall in the same derelict state.


    A doorway, leading off from the dining hall, lead me into the main entrance with some unusual architecture.



    Moving back around the building I decided to to have a look on the roof.




    Climbing down I noticed the room below, presumably for heating or power, had been flooded. The room also appeared to go underground although this would have been near impossible to explore.


    There was very little left to see of the canteen site now apart from an open room with a stage that was it.


    We left the canteen and moved on to Block G.

    Thanks for looking.

    I am surprised this is still derelict when I last went here there was people clearing it out so never bothered.glad you got in.it was heavily vandalised when I did go in the first time quite a while ago
    I like to go where others fear to tread.

    aha
    i wondered what was in here. i had a crack at it earlier in the year but there were simply too many people around. Its odd how it sits on a road of residential houses. Shame, I had this fantasy in my head of it being something decent inside.
    Check out my other photos (including blinding HDR and other weird stuff) and my electronica muzak here (the main page is over here)

    Yes it took us a little while to get in. When inside we could hear the music from the museum. It is a shame it’s trashed, I was expecting a few cookers, it appears I was also optimistic.
