Restoring the wartime birthplace of the modern computer

Bletchley Park
There's a very good article in Canada's The Globe and The Mail about Bletchley Park, its wartime role and its restoration. If you're new to the story it's a good introduction. Perhaps, being Canadian, they should have mentioned Bill Tutte though who emigrated to Canada after WWII and was partly responsible for cracking the Lorenz cypher (you can read more about his remarkable achievements here).
