THE HISTORY OF BLETCHLEY PARK
After the conclusion of codebreaking operations in 1946 Bletchley Park took on a new role as a host to various training schools.
Teachers, Post Office workers, air traffic control system engineers, and members of GCHQ found their way to the site for specialised training.
In1987 Bletchley Park's fifty-year association with British Intelligence came to an end when it was finally closed.
Unfortunately, there were plans to demolish the entire site making way for housing developments and a supermarket.
Recognising the historical significance of the location and the need to preserve it, the Bletchley Archaeological and Historical Society formed a small committee in 1991.
Their goal was to save Bletchley Park ensuring that its story would live on for future generations' education and enjoyment.
In 1992 the committee succeeded in persuading Milton Keynes Council to designate most of Bletchley Park as a conservation area.
Merely three days late, the Bletchley Park Trust was established and in 1994, its Chief Patron, HRH The Duke of Kent, inaugurated the site as a museum open to the public.
The Trust was granted a 250-year leasehold of the core historic areas of the Park in June 1999, solidifying its commitment to preservation.
Additionally, in 2009, the Heritage Lottery Fund provided essential support through a successful bid.
Bletchley Park is now a historic visitor attraction welcoming over 250,000 visitors each year..
