Visit to Bletchley Park.




We are members of a club and it was our summer outing yesterday.  Above us a picture of part of the grounds of Bletchley Park.  It was so tranquil.


We went to visit Bletchley Park
I wasn’t too keen on this,
Thought it would be all gloomy and dark,
Things like that I could miss.

We finally arrived in our charabanc
To a lovely countryside view.
Gathered together our little gang
And off to find what to do.

Well, talk about stepping back in time,
To imagine eight thousand odd folk
Milling around these grounds so fine,
Where work was definitely no joke.

Studied the early computer,
Watched The Colossus still at work.
Learnt their affect on the future;
Then around the canteen did lurk.

We found that a wartime price
Was not in evidence there.
A crumb and cuppa sufficed
As we didn’t have a millionair.

The evening pub delightful.
The food was scrummy and good.
The hosts were very mindful
Of us and did what they could.
