Sea Forts


Shivering Sands Gun Tower The little black towers out at sea on the horizon off the coast of Herne Bay often bring about questions of what they are. They are infact what remains of the World War II Thames Estury Sea Defences. The photo above is the Gun Tower of the Shivering Sand Army Fort Group.

The following pages present a little history, more photos and information about the towers.
