2013 was the 70th anniversary of Bletchley Park's most significant year. The defeat of the North Atlantic U boat threat, the start of the 'special relationship' with the USA and the installation of the first 'Colossus' computer.

This compilation shows how Bletchley railway station might have looked in 1943. It's proximity being one of the reasons why Bletchley Park was chosen as the centre of Allied code breaking. In addition to 'normal' traffic it would have been used by senior figures from the Government and Military of allied nations, boffins developing the new 'computer' technology and of course the thousands working in total secrecy at Bletchley Park.
