The Sea Forts

Flickr user Tim Mitchard has a photo set about the WWII-era Maunsell Sea Forts (Thanks, Mitch, for permission to use the photo above). These giant tin-cans-on-stilts were an interesting piece of the British defense system against Nazi air raids, and Mitchard has a detailed write-up about the forts and his photography of the relics.
