Conservation of Historic British Bases in Antarctica
A conservation survey of the old British stations was carried out by BAS and the UK Antarctic Heritage Trust in 1994. The survey selected four bases for conservation, all of which have now been designated as Historic Monuments under the Antarctic Treaty. The remains of a British station and a whaling station at Deception Island have also been designated.
- Port Lockroy (Base A) (managed by the UK)
- Deception Island (Base B) (managed by Chile/Norway/UK)
- Stonington Island (Base E)(managed by USA)
- Wordie House, Argentine Islands (Base F)(managed by UK/Ukraine)
- Horseshoe Island (Base Y) and Blaiklock, the nearby refuge hut (managed by UK)
The Reclus hut was dismantled from Portal Point in 1997 and taken to the Museum in Stanley, Falkland Islands, where it has been rebuilt as a museum exhibit.
