Elevation

The eerie remains of the forts at Red Sands, showing their elevation above the sea. On the right of the image, you can see the remains of one of the walkways that linked the forts – just imagine having to cross that on a dark evening!!

Red Sands Maunsell Forts

Not my best image, my excuse is that we were bobbing about in a rubber dinghy, and I had difficulty holding a heavy camera with a telephoto lens….

  1. More like creatures than structures. Brilliant shot.

  2. They are bizarre structures, you’d be so vulnerable up there!

  3. It’s still a most dramatic shot, Sue. Eerie and sci-fi shivery.

  4. how interesting, i never would have walked across in the evening. they kind of look alien

  5. Looked it up on Google…amazing structures, would be great in mist, but suppose the boats do not sail then. well done Sue

  6. I saw that too – after the Martians have perished – well shot from a bobbing boat too

  7. Yes, to all the comments about aliens, Martians, War of the Worlds, etc. Impresssive shot!

  8. Oh I like them! Were they used for Pirate Radio at one time?

  9. They look very old and vulnerable, I’m surprised the sea hasn’t, long since, destroyed them

      I know there were other forts in other areas off the Kent coast, and I believe those have disappeared…why these haven’t must be testament to the design and materials, but surely they will disappear sooner rather than later….

  10. I always love to see those estuary forts. If my memory is correct, one of them was used as a ‘pirate’ radio station, in the 1960s.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  11. Never heard about Red Sands, I think it’s a very good capture. Really interesting object.

  12. Gorgeous – interesting! Glad you captured them before the sea did!
