Bletchley Park at Risk

A UK correspondent reports that Bletchley Park, the location that led the breaking of the German codes during WWII, is in danger of being condemned. The site is now a museum. Bletchley Park is historic because it was the first place that computer aided analysis was developed and focused against difficult problems. Problems that some thought were not solve-able. A monument to analytic optimism and a prime piece of technological history that deserves to be preserved. Some additional background:

'Neglect' of Bletchley condemned

Code centre 'in financial crisis'

UK Petition lobbying the Prime Minister to act to help preserve Bletchley Park.
