CANCELLED Coach Visit: Bletchley Park @ Bletchley Park
May 28 @ 8:00 am – 7:30 pm

This Visit has been cancelled.  All those who had booked have had refunds and been contacted.  

We will make an all-day visit to this once top-secret home of the World War Two codebreakers to explore the achievements of the men and women who played such a vital part in the Allied victory. We will have a short, private guided tour, before giving you the chance to see the beautifully restored historic buildings, which vividly bring to life what it was like to work at Bletchley Park during the war.

Bletchley Park is also the birthplace of modern computing; for those interested in understanding more about its fascinating development, there is also an optional opportunity to visit the National Museum of Computing on the Bletchley Estate, which can be arranged on the day for an additional small fee (£7.50 over 60s).

Start: 8am from Avenue Rd (opposite The Willows).  Finish: about 7.30pm at Avenue Rd.

Lunch and Tea: Own picnic, or cafes on site

Talk: Building a Great Mediæval Cathedral @ The Eden Centre
Jun 10 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

Speaker: Peter Petrie

Peter is a guide at Gloucester Cathedral therefore all cathedrals are of interest to him. The talk focuses on why there was a huge surge of building cathedrals and other churches between 1080 and about 1450 and then the surge died almost completely. Peter deals with some of the questions he gets asked as a guide, not just about Gloucester, but cathedrals in general.
