  Mark Pendleton, et al. The UK’s first and only vertical test facility and associated cleanroom reprocessing suite has been developed, commissioned, and entered steady-state operations at the UKRI-STFC Daresbury Laboratory. The facility is capable of 2 K testing of 3 jacketed SRF cavities in a horizontal configuration per 2-week test cycle. We report on the associated cryogenic, RF, UHV, mechanical, cleanroom, and HPR infrastructure. SRF cavity workflows have been developed to meet the requirements of the ESS high beta cavity project within a newly developed quality management system, SuraBee, in accordance with ISO9001. To support standardisation of measurements across the collaboration, reference cavities have been measured for cross-reference between CEA, DESY, and UKRI-STFC. We further report on commissioning objectives, observations, and continuous improvement activities.
