Red Sand Towers
Red Sand Towers, 10 miles East of Southend Pier, in the middle of the Thames Estuary, were erected in 1943 to defend London from German bombing raids and to help fight off a sea-borne invasion from occupied France. Another similar Fortress "Shivering Sand Towers" exists 4 miles further out.
