Bletchley Park - we must save it.

Unbelievable though it may be, Bletchley Park is under threat, simply because it doesn't have a reliable source of funding. Apparently, it has been deemed ineligible for funding by the National Lottery, and turned down by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

This is an outrageous, shocking situation. Can we really be guilty of placing such a low value on maintaining this important site? If you know the history behind Bletchley Park and the Enigma code, then you will understand why I feel so strongly about this. If you are not familiar with this amazing story, read around the subject a little and you will soon appreciate the magnitude of the achievement at Bletchley and its importance to this country.
