Google is to help raise funds for the restoration of part of the Bletchley Park code breaking centre.
The company said at a fundraising party that raised over $10,000 that it will contribute to the restoration of Block C, which stored the original punch cards used to program code breaking computers used in the Second World War.
Google also used one of its StreetView tricycles to photograph the site and put the images online to spur interest.
"We've joined forces with the Bletchley Park Trust to help raise funds to rebuild Block C, the original wartime building that once housed the vast punched card index - in essence, the 'search engine' at the heart of Bletchley Park's decryption activity," said Peter Barron, Google's director of external relations for EMEA.
"Today, Block C is derelict. We hope to help restore it to serve as a visitor and learning centre for Bletchley Park and the UK's National Museum of Computing."
Google is one of the few IT companies to take a leading role in helping Bletchley Park, where many of the foundations of modern computing were built.
The company recently pledged $100,000 to preserve a collection of Alan Turing's papers for the nation.
