Save Bletchley Park

The museum and associated projects at Bletchley Park are in dire need of funding. Historic buildings are crumbling and need restoration. Despite its historical importance it receives no ongoing public funding and is urgently seeking donations. The iconic Victorian Mansion alone requires somewhere in the region of £1,000,000 for repairs and some of the symbolic Codebreaking Huts are in a desperate state of decay.

They're soliciting donations. If you live in the UK, they're also soliciting signatures for an e-petition to Downing Street to get government funding.

It would be a shame to see this important part of geek history fall into ruin.

¹ Yes, that URL caused me to consider the possibility that it's a scam targeted at geeks. The donation link takes you to, which has been in DNS for ten years and is registered to Bletchley Park Trust Limited. So if it's a geek-targed scam, they're thorough and have a long planning horizon.
