Google makes £550,000 donation to Bletchley Park restoration

If you aren't familiar with Bletchley Park, this is the place in England where during the war the allies worked on breaking the codes that the Germans and their allies were using to send coded messages. The codebreakers at Bletchley Park worked on breaking the codes of several enigma machines. Bletchley Park is also considered the birthplace of the modern computer.

Google has donated £550,000 to the restoration project seeking to return the site back to how it was during the war as a museum to honor those that worked there and helped shorten the war. The location will also be to educate people on what went on during the war.

The trust overseeing the restoration of the site is working on raising £15 million to transform the site. The first stage of the restoration will start with the codebreaking huts 1, 3, and 6 where the vital work of defeating the German enigma machine is conducted.
