Situated just outside north-west London it is ideally placed to explore the nearby gardens. Alexander Korda's Film Studios were based in the village of Denham between 1936-52, but were merged with Pinewood four miles away, and were subsequently demolished. Films such as Brief Encounter and Great Expectations were filmed in the studios here, and the village of Denham was used as a location for some of the scenes in Brief Encounter. It's lure as scenic location has more recently been utilised in episodes of Midsommer Murders. Nearby attractions include Bekonscot model village, a charmingly nostalgic creation, complete with working train, that was first opened in 1929. The mighty Windsor Castle – the oldest inhabited castle in the world – is under nine miles away.
Codebreakers – The Story of Enigma
Your included excursion to Bletchley Park will reveal all about one of World War II’s most fascinating stories. Allied Codebreakers – based in the 19th-century mansion house on an estate near Milton Keynes in Buckinghamshire – deciphered a vast number of German secret messages and used the intelligence they gained to help secure Allied victory. The Germans had entrusted their secret communications to an ingenious machine named Enigma, which was portable, easily operated, and could be set up in millions of ways. Every one of the codes used was changed every 24 hours.
The Allies gained invaluable information about troop and aircraft deployments, orders of battle, U-boat movements, technical development, military intentions and tank and artillery strengths. It is generally believed that the intelligence from Enigma shortened the war by about two years.
