Breaking the Code

As part of Black Marble’s day of celebrating our computing history, we visited Bletchley Park – home of the historic site of Station X , the base of British codebreaking activities during World War II and birthplace of the modern computer.

A conservation area since the early nineties, the Park was saved just in time from demolition as the secret story of Britain’s codebreakers was finally made public.

Like the National Museum of Computing that shares the site, the Trust receives no government funding and is regularly looking for sponsorship to maintain the historic site for future generations.  Black Marble supports the work of the Trust and would encourage other technology companies in the UK to do the same – simply visit their website and select Donate.
