Climatological Station and Magnetic Observatory

The Climatological Station has provided daily readings for well over a century. The 1940s wooden building beside the Climatological Station is a remnant of the Magnetic Observatory set up here in 1901. Explorers such as Robert Scott and Ernest Shackleton calibrated their instruments here before heading south to Antarctica.
