Bletchley Park

If you are unaware Bletchley Park played a vital part in World War II, it undoubtedly shortened the war (possibly by years) by decoding intercepted Nazi messages which had been encoded on the Enigma machine.  This site is credited with being the place where the first programmable computer was used to crack the more complex Lorenz Cipher Machine.

According to this petition number 10 Downing Street...


...the park is severly lacking in funds and has at best 2 to 3 years before it is forced to close down.  The idea that a site with such a historical significance could be bulldozed and redeveloped is astonishing!

Please help to preserve this computer related historical UK site by making as many UK residents as possible aware of this petition!

Bletchely Park is certainly an important place, especially to IT professionals, since it is the birthplace of modern computing.
