Danesfield House, eyes to Bletchley Park’s ears


Danesfield House is steeped in history and none more important than that of the war years, 1941 – 1945, when Danesfield House was requisitioned and became RAF Medmenham.

Join us for an afternoon tea, see fascinating artifacts and listen whilst Karl Thompson, Medmenham Association Curator, relays stories of the Battle of the V Weapons and the Battle of the Beams, highlighting how Danesfield House and Bletchley Park were employed together to answer Churchill’s critical intelligence needs. These captivating stories will include a run through of a typical mission from task to report concluding with how the relationships and methods developed then are still in use today.

We will also be joined by Dr David Kenyon, Research Historian at Bletchley Park. The Government Code and Cipher School (GC & CS) which was based at Bletchley Park from 1939-1946, was responsible for the interception of enemy communications and for breaking the codes used in them. Along with Medmenham it formed one of the key pillars of the Allied intelligence effort. David will be able to tell the Signals Intelligence (SIGINT) side of the WW2 intelligence story. There will also be an opportunity to discuss with Karl and David questions relating to RAF Medmenham and Bletchley Park during the afternoon.
