Bletchley Park

I visited Bletchley Park recently.

It's a very interesting place, though I will say that perhaps the "visitor experience" could be greatly improved: many things were closed, and nothing was mentioned about this at the entrance.

The statue of Alan Turing.



Keys of an Enigma machine.



Typewriter.




Bomber jacket.

From a 1940s manual for "new wives"..



Colossus strips.

An Aston Martin Atom.








A Bombe.




The Doughnut.


Harrier.



Note the E&E tie..

Punch cards.

The Hotline.

A very early Apple machine.

Wrest Park

I spent a sunny Sunday at Wrest Park.

It was considerably hotter than the last time I was here, but equally beautiful.
