Here we have the back of the mansion at Bletchley Park. This is the original country house that the first of the codebreakers moved into. Station X was technically only the radio room under the water tank that MI6 used for its agents in the fields. Later in the war, this was moved elswhere due to fears that the Germans would detect the radio communications and attack Bletchley Park, and damage or destroy the codebreaking operations.

The world's first computer was built in this building. Look around, ye mighty, and despair.
