Virtual Wartime Bletchley Park by Tony Sale

The First occupation of the House (1938)

The South Face of the House

Miss Barbara Abernethy, a young lady who had recently joined the Naval Section of GC&CS was given a desk in the bay window of the Library. She looked out onto the lovely rose garden along the south face of the House.

When GC&CS came back to Bletchley Park in August 1939, Miss Abernethy was appalled to now be looking at the wall of a large wooden hut.

This was Hut 4 and the Naval Section soon moved into it.
