The British hut currently standing at Stonington, is a steel-framed hut and the first two-storey building to be erected by the British Antarctic Survey. It marked the beginning of modern construction techniques. As well as the main building the station also comprises of a number of other structures: the generator shed, pup pens, emergency store, radio mast, water tank and the collapsed anemometer tower. The buildings remain in relatively good condition but only a few of the original artefacts remain on site.
British Base E, Stonington Island, was designated HSM No. 64 in 1995 and has been under our management since 2014.
