In the Thames Estuary twelve miles off the nearest coast, a collection of peculiar structures can be found. They are the Maunsell Sea Forts; a series of abandoned military installations created during World War II. Primarily constructed out of steel and concrete the towers seemingly appear out of the water. These outposts had a successful career defending the United Kingdom against German air-raids throughout the war until they were later decommissioned, stripped of their armaments, and left to the elements. Since then, the towers have been sporadically appropriated for a variety of different purposes while steadily falling into ruination. With an aesthetic almost as fantastic as their history, the Maunsell Sea Forts have a unique ability to capture the imagination.
