Trip to Bletchley Park

Ten members left Papworth on the 8 July for a very memorable visit to Bletchley Park.  I think we were all so impressed and proud of the brilliant work that the Code Breakers did during World War 2, working around the clock in shifts 7 days a week.  It is said that they shortened the war by 2 years and saved countless lives.  Bletchley Park is also where the world’s first electronic computers were installed and operated.  On the tour round there are many points with interactive machines, so you can have a go at being a code breaker.

All in all a very good day out, and one that made you proud to be British.
