Station P was a British base camp at the head of Mateev Cove on the east side of Hannah Point, Livingston Island in the South Shetland Islands, Antarctica that supported survey, geology and biology field work from 29 December 1957 until 15 March 1958. The camp was occupied by a six-member team led by Hugh Simpson. A hut intended for erection on the site failed to reach its destination, as the ship RRS Shackleton transporting it was damaged by the ice and parts of the hut were used in the ship’s repair. As a result, the plans for a more permanent British presence on the island failed to materialize.
The encampment was located at Ustra Peak, 1.97 km southwest of Krakra Bluff, 6.88 km west by south of Ereby Point and 9.34 km northwest of Salisbury Bluff (British mapping in 1858, and Bulgarian mapping of the area in 2005 and 2009).which is 1.32 km east-northeast of Hannah Point, 1.07 km south-southeast of
