Where the Real ‘Imitation Game’ Happened – NYTimes.com

“BLETCHLEY, England — When “Captain Ridley’s shooting party” gathered here in late August 1938 as weekend guests at Bletchley Park, a Buckinghamshire country house, they were accompanied by one of the finest chefs from the Savoy hotel. But the hunting that took place wasn’t the usual. The visitors were members of MI6 and the Government Code and Cypher School in Britain, scouting out a retreat for code breakers who would be needed in the coming war.”

“By now, of course, the estate’s cover is fully blown. This mock-Tudor, mock-Gothic, red brick mansion, framed by aged trees and with a picturesque pond, has become familiar from documentaries and television broadcasts and will soon become even more well known from the new film “The Imitation Game.” ”
