Well Done Camelot

Keep it coming.
About bloody time

Good to see grant money put to such good use :D
English Heritage/National Trust
I'm surprised that neither of these have taken it on, though I guess Bletchley Park may be choosing to remain independent.
Still, at least the Lottery are spending money on worthwhile things.
That is all.
Lottery money heading in the right direction for once.
Now if only they could get the Enigma-cracking machines predicting lottery results ;)

The Vulcan had HLF support, so do a lot of preserved railways - all goods things for me.
Anyway well done Bletchly
For smart people they sure act dumb

good to see amanfrommars out of rehab
haven't seen those nonsense comments for a while, back living in the barn are we derek?
It seems that signing a petition actually works sometimes.
