BLETCHLEY PARK ... BLETCHLEY PARK ... BLETCHLEY PARK ... BLETCHLEY PARK ... 

Novel

The House - Bletchley became the home of Station X during the War. Jericho and Logie were amongst the first to establish themselves there, but while he was away Jericho finds the Park has grown as their role in the War becomes more important. For more about the background of Station X see the History section.

"He looked back only when he reached the road, and that was the last impression of Bletchley Park: a thin line of low, black buildings - mere dots and dashes along the horizon..."

The Huts - due to the growth of the Park as a Communications Unit, temporary huts had to be built to accommodate staff. The Naval Unit in Hut 8 is under the command of Logie and is where Jericho and Puck work.

"At the far end of the hut a faint clacking noise began as the Type-X machines started their day's work."

The Museum - the basement of the House is a museum of Enigma memorabilia captured by British Forces. It is here that Jericho uses one of the machines to decipher the stolen intercepts.

"A typed notice was stuck on the back of the safe door: 'It is strictly forbidden to remove any item without my express permission. (Signed) L.F.N Skynner, Head of Naval Section.'"

Film

Chicheley Hall, Buckinghamshire - Chichley Hall was built at the start of the 18th Century in red brick with stone pillars. During World War II the house was used for a Special Operations Unit similar to Bletchley Park. The hall has not only been used for filming 'Enigma', but also 'Pride & Prejudice', 'The Fourth Protocol' and 'Black Beauty'.

Elstree Studios - interior shots of the huts, houses and other important scenes were filmed at Elstree.

In the Novel, Jericho works on the intercepts in the Museum, whilst in the Film, he and Hester hide in a barn near Beaumanor.
