HUT 4 BLETCHLEY PARK

DESCRIPTION + /

Hut 4 formed part of the Government Code and Cipher School at Bletchley Park and was construction in August 1939. It is situated directly to the south of the mansion and was one of the largest huts to be built at Bletchley Park. It had two later extensions.

From early 1940 the hut housed the German Naval Section which dealt with non-Enigma messages. In 1942 this section moved into Block A (Monument HOB UID 1525270) and Block B (Monument HOB UID 1525305). Hut 4 then until the end of the war housed the Military Intelligence, the Japanese Military Section, and parts of WT co-ordination. After the war, until 1995, it was used by the Bletchley Park Club. It is now a cafe and bar run by the Bletchley Park Trust as part of the Bletchley Park National Codes Centre Museum.

The hut has a brick plinth, a timber super structure with a double pitched asphalt roof.
