Station H is built at Factory Cove, Borge Bay on Signy Island above the old whaling station.
It is occupied since 18th March 1947 and from 1996 as a summer only station.

The station presently consists of buildings constructed or refurbished as part of the 1995-1996 rebuild. It is designed to house eight people, although this may be increased to nine for very short periods by the use of a fold-down bed in the medical room. The main building, Sorlle House, includes living, accommodation, laboratories, communal showers and toilet facilities and other buildings on site provide storage and provision of services such as power and water production. In addition there are four small huts around the Island.
