Second World War code-breaker Alan Turing's old house in Wilmslow, Cheshire, has been put up for sale.

The 5-bedroom property, "Copper Folly", that was once home to the wartime genius, is being sold at a price of £945,000 by local estate agents Gascoigne Halman.

Dr Turing, whose work breaking the Enigma code arguably shortened the war by two years, was recently granted a posthumous royal pardon for being chemically castrated after being convicted of homosexual activity.

Take a look below at the home now on sale for nearly £1 million that was once occupied by the legendary genius.
