Paget Glacier (54°24′S 36°28′W / 54.400°S 36.467°W / -54.400; -36.467Coordinates: 54°24′S 36°28′W / 54.400°S 36.467°W / -54.400; -36.467) is a glacier in South Georgia, 4 miles (6 km) long and 1 mile (1.6 km) wide, which flows northeast from the north slopes of Mount Paget into the west side of Nordenskjold Glacier. The glacier was roughly surveyed in 1928–29 by a German expedition under Kohl-Larsen, and resurveyed in 1951–52 by the SGS. The name, which is derived from nearby Mount Paget, was given by the SGS in 1951–52.
