Description

Ny-London, or Camp Mansfield, located on a small Peirsonhamna beach, is in the immediate vicinity of Ny-Ålesund. There are the remains of a settlement and a marble quarry from the early 20th century, constituting the national heritage of Svalbard there. This is one of the best-preserved places of this type in Spitsbergen.
In Ny-London you can admire technical equipment from before the World War I, such as steam engines, lifts, carts, and two huts, or settlers’ houses, currently used by scientists. These specimens must not be touched, moved or destroyed.
