Maps of Enderby settlement

Based on archaeological investigations and historical records, these maps give an idea of the extent of building at Hardwicke, the township for the Enderby settlement at Port Ross on Auckland Island. In addition to some 20 houses for families, there was a substantial house for the governor and a number of community buildings, including a warehouse and a cooperage for building barrels.
