One Hundred Year Anniversary of Captain Scott's South Pole Expedition

One hundred years ago, on 17 January 1912, Captain Robert Falcon Scott and four other intrepid explorers arrived at the South Pole. They had hoped to make history by being the first people ever to reach the South Pole. However, upon arriving they discovered that they had been beaten by a Norwegian team led by Roald Amundsen.

The journey back to their base camp was to become a battle for survival which ended in the whole team tragically perishing in the Polar ice, only a few short miles from a resupply base.

Follow the link below to see some fantastic images of Scott's heroic but ultimately fatal quest.


In March there will be various events up and down the country to mark the heroic but fatal Scott Polar Expedition.
