The Trust operates in the British Antarctic Territory on the Antarctic Peninsula. Besides its flagship operation on Port Lockroy, the Trust conserves five other historic sites: Damoy, Detaille, Horseshoe, Stonington, and Wordie.

Deception Island, as an ASPA (Antarctic Specially Protected Area) managed by several nations is more complicated, but the Trust is supportive on any potential heritage conservation plans.  Download the Whalers Bay Visitor Guide (410KB pdf file).  You can find details of all British buildings on the Peninsula on the British Antarctic Survey website here.
