Save Bletchley Park

It's hard to believe that Bletchley Park will fall into hands of developers. More history buried under a car park.

Known as “Station X” during World War II, it's where British scientists and mathematicians, including Alan Turing (later Prof at Manchester) broke the German “enigma” codes, which changed daily, as well as laying the foundations of the modern computer industry. It’s a fabulous story, and all true, and saving it matters. It needs repairs, and serious help with running costs. The alternative is yet another shopping development.

Please, consider signing this PM’s petition:
