Damoy Hut was established by the BAS in November 1975 as a summer air facility and was used annually until November 1993 when it was last occupied by BAS staff.

The hut was used as a transit station in early summer for BAS staff and stores to be flown south when the sea ice prevented access by ship to Rothera Research Station on Adelaide Island. Damoy Hut is now closed. Damoy Hut is now an unoccupied British station and serves as an emergency refuge only.
