Turnpike is a British-developed software suite for MS Windows, originally written by Chris Hall and Richard Clayton (who had previously been the co-founders and principal programmers of Locomotive Software). The suite, which comprises a combined email and news client as well as a separate program for handling the Internet connection aspects, first appeared in 1995. It was acquired by Demon Internet later the same year and for a number of years was supplied to their customers free of charge. It also has a small following of non-Demon users. Amongst its early reviews were those in Everyday Practical Electronics in November, 1995 and PC Format in Spring 1997.
Version 5.01 includes PGP.
