    Bletchley's not too far from my dad's, so maybe I can tie this into a trip to see him too! It'll all depend on accommodation, hiring a car and whether we have the kids that weekend though...

    I take it Bletchley will be open on that day, if so I would really like to go, have always wanted to see the place, and at the last hexus meet I was bogged down with work and had no chance of going
