Our conservation team made their way to Horseshoe, Base Y in 2016/17, to complete an initial site survey and emergency repair work.
Opened in 1955 and closed in 1960, Base Y is a time capsule of Antarctic history.
During the time the conservation team were onsite UKAHT updated diary entries from Base Y from 1955 through to 2017. With contributions from base logs, personal diaries and modern day updates, Horseshoe Diaries offers an account of what has happened, what is happening, and what will happen with this remarkable base.
