Shivering Sands Maunsell Army Forts

Shivering Sands Army Forts are a set of Maunsell Sea Forts similar to Red Sands. They were built on land in taken out to sea to be constructed in 1943. Anti-Aircraft guns were originally mounted on the top and accomodation rooms located below. As with the Red Sands Forts, they were decomissioned in the 1950s, but saw new life during the 1960s as the base of pirate radio stations. Unfortunately, the searchlight tower has already been removed, its place now marked by a buoy, and the future of the other towers in uncertain.


Boat tours are available to the forts via Bayblast or the X-Pilot boat, unfortunately no ladders remain, so boarding the forts is no longer possible.

It has been mentioned that the Searchlight Tower has been removed. Although one of the seven original towers is missing, with just a stump evident, it was actually a gun tower and was not removed as such. Rather it was knocked over into the water as the result of a collison by a vessel in thick fog in 1963.

Excuse me, isn't there a movie about this place?
I mean, I watched it a long time ago and I dont remember the name, but I'm pretty sure it was the same towers.

These are so unique towers have heared about so many towers but not about gun tower.they might use them for wars and defending boarders .

Personally for me, these towers look frightening, they would perfectly fit as an installation for the film about the invasion of the aliens.

This is great information on design. We love design at Car Wrap Houston because it's practically the main thing we do to help our customers. But it's great to see it put to use in other disciplines as well like this.

I really enjoyed seeing the work that was done on a subterranean level here! At Deck construction Greenville SC we're moving dirt all the time to build our structures. But they are nothing like this! This is on another level.

It has been referenced that the Searchlight Tower has been eliminated. Albeit one of the seven unique pinnacles is absent, with simply a stump clear, it was really a firearm tower and was not eliminated in that capacity. Maybe it was pushed over into the water as the consequence of a collison by a vessel in thick haze in 1963. | Scaffolding hire Swansea

It's a shame that no ladders remain, it seems like a great place to explore but it would first need to be inspected to check out it's estructural integrity! Imagine what kind of relics of the past you could find inside it! I would like to recommend my favorite wallpaper installation in phoenix
