BBC NEWS | England | Beds/Bucks/Herts | Grant for WWII code-breaking site



Bletchley Park in Buckinghamshire, the top secret code-breaking hub of World War II, has been awarded nearly £500,000 of lottery funds.

The development money from the Heritage Lottery Fund will help the historic site become a world heritage and educational centre.

It is the first step towards a target of £10m to completely revamp the site.

The home of the code-breakers has been open to the public since 1994 but is in an advanced state of dilapidation.
