I often get asked about Bletchley Park and my connection with it. Here are a few links that give an overview of my 14 year fascination and involvement.
Finding out about the women who worked there is how I first got interested in Bletchley Park in 2003, I got funding for an oral history project “The Women of Station X” to record the memories of the women who worked there:
then I found out that Bletchley Park might have to close so I started a campaign to save it. The whole story is captured in my book:
US Amazon – Saving Bletchley Park
UK Amazon – Saving Bletchley Park
and some of the highlights on my blog from 2008, read from the bottom up to get an overview of how my campaign started and what we did including getting Stephen Fry involved:
Here’s my old school 2008 blog: http://savingbletchleypark.org/
I spoke about my life and the campaign last December at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, CA
It’s been so wonderful to see the recognition of Bletchley Park growing over the years since the campaign started with books like Andrew Hodges – Alan Turing: The Enigma getting recognition and films being made like The Imitation Game starring great Hollywood actors like Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley.
Also who could forget the visit of the Duchess of Cambridge to Bletchley Park whose grandmother and great aunt worked at Bletchley Park.
