The Events Panel has arranged a special visit to the museum for members of WCIT and their guests.
The Museum, which is housed in Block H of Bletchley Park, is where electronic code-breaking was conducted during World War II. The museum holds 70 years of computing history, including the war-time code breaking computer Colossus; a replica of the EDSAC computer being built by a team led by Liveryman Andrew Herbert, and the world’s oldest working computer, the Harwell Dekatron, aka WITCH. The museum is also home to much of the Computer Conservation Society activity (Past Master David Morriss is presently Chairman of this).
The visit will start with a buffet lunch and you will be shown round by trustee Kevin Murrell, a Freeman of WCIT. We suggest meeting at 12:00 at the museum. Car parking is available at the museum, and Bletchley railway station is just five minutes walk away.
Please note that you should emphasise that you are only visiting TNMoC at the entrance or you will be charged for entrance to Bletchley Park also. Of course, if you wish to visit Bletchley that is a different matter!
Numbers will be limited to 30
You will be making a donation of £25 per person which will be divided between TNMoC and the WCIT Charity.
