I think that everyone knows that Bletchley Park had something to do with code breaking and in particular overcoming the complex ciphers used on the German Enigma machine.
I have to confess, that until today newspapers and television had led me to seriously believe that there was a rebuilt Collosus machine in a run down shed.
Nothing could be further from the truth.
Go now, it is great.
Alan Turing designed the Turing Bombe, there is a replica now and it works, it is not quiet, it is very elegant and even uses the original oil.
Bletchley Park or #BPark as it is known on Twitter is a really all about Mathematics and a certain amount about computers – but what a learning experience.
How did I found out about Bletchley Park today – well my new geeky best friend Twitter that is how, I went to the Station X event and I am very pleased I did.
