Save Bletchley Park

Bletchley Park, also known as Station X, is an estate located in the town of Bletchley, in Buckinghamshire, and, since 1967, part of Milton Keynes, England. During World War II, Bletchley Park was the location of the United Kingdom's main codebreaking establishment. Codes and ciphers of several Axis countries were deciphered there, most importantly those of the German Enigma and Lorenz machines. The high-level intelligence produced by Bletchley Park, codenamed Ultra, is frequently credited with aiding the Allied war effort and shortening the war, although Ultra's effect on the actual outcome of WWII is debated.

Bletchley Park is now a museum and is open to the public. The main Manor house is also available for functions and is licensed for ceremonies. Part of the fees for hiring the facilities are paid to the fund, and is another way that support can be given to the Trust.

Done, thanks.

Not sure if this petition was started before or after the pledge by English Heritage, but I hope their pledge is matched.

Mary.

OK - all done and dusted! Thanks for bringing this to everyone's attention. I'm a Robert Harris fan as well.
