At the excellent Bletchley Park museum:

Sign reads:

These shelters were built during WWII to house the many bicycles that were used daily by Bletchley Park staff as transport to and from the site.

Cycling was one of the few cheap and convenient methods of travel at the time.

The construction of the shelters is a fine example of wartime engineering.

(Then another sign inside the shelter reads: Warning: Fragile Roof) ;-)

A plaque attached to one of the bikes reads...

This bicycle has been donated by the late
Frederick George Dent
who rode it from new, for many years
and until his passing on 31st October 2008
at 88 years.
