The Bagshawe Glacier is a glacier on the west coast of Graham Land in the north of the Antarctic Peninsula . It flows from the northeast slopes of Mount Theodore to Lester Cove , a branch of Andvord Bay .

The mouth of the glacier was first sighted during the Belgica expedition (1897–1899) of the Belgian polar explorer Adrien de Gerlache de Gomery . The British geodesist Kenneth Victor Blaiklock (* 1927) carried out a rough survey from the Falkland Islands Dependencies Survey in April 1955. It is named after the British geologist Thomas Wyatt Bagshawe (1901-1976), who worked with Maxime Charles Lester (1891-1957) in the course of the British Imperial Antarctic Expedition (1920-1922) under the direction of John Lachlan Copes (1893-1947) between January Lived at Waterboat Point in 1921 and January 1922 and performed geodetic survey work in the area.
