A recent Slashdot post talks about financial problems at Bletchley Park. Bletchley Park was home and workplace to Allied cryptographers in WWII. Some say that their success at deciphering German Enigma messages was responsible for the Allied victory against the Nazis. At the very least, their efforts probably significantly shorted the war (in the European theatre, anyway).
It's sad to me to see such an important historical site threatened. They'd probably turn it into condos and shopping centers.
