Port Lockroy

Despite battling through one of the wettest seasons seen in the last two decades of work at Port Lockroy, with only five nonraining days out of 33, Al and the UKAHT conservation team had a very productive season completing the majority of the works scheduled. The project benefited greatly from having an enthusiastic, dedicated and experienced team.

The team conducted a full survey of the historic buildings at Base A and Damoy Hut to assess their conditions, with repairs made where necessary. A number of maintenance tasks were also completed, as well as product testing in order to be better informed for future conservation works at all of the historic huts within UKAHT’s care.
