Lovely view, Dave, glad you're "out and about" again!! Cheers GL.
I was a cipher operator in the Royal Signals and incredibly despite this place being on my doorstep this was the first time I have visited! Oh well, better late than never!
A view towards the Mansion across the lake.
This is a memorial which commemorates the three Polish mathematicians, Marian Rejewski, Henryk Zygalski and Jerzy Rozycki who helped crack the Enigma code which shortened the war by two or more years.
This memorial was opened by the Queen in 2011.
Alan Mathison Turing, 1912-1954, was a British pioneering computer scientist, mathematician, logician, cryptanalyst, philosopher, mathematical biologist and marathon runner. He was highly influential in the development of computer science providing a formalisation of the concepts of algorithm and computation with the Turing machine which can be considered a model of the general purpose computer. Turing is widely considered to be the father of theoretical computer science and artificial intelligence. During the Second World War Turing worked for the Government Code & Cypher School,(GC&CS), at Bletchley Park, Britain's codebreaking centre. For a time he led Hut 8, the section responsible for German naval cryptanalysis. He devised a number of techniques for breaking German ciphers and played a pivotal role in cracking intercepted coded messages that enabled the Allies to defeat the Nazis in many crucial engagements including the Battle of the Atlantic. It has been estimated that work shortened the war by two to four years.
Such a beauty.. nice one!
Great shot of a summers day in York. I like the hdr look too. Must have been a great little trip Dave.
