Grain Battery, Grain, Kent
Built in 1855, but modified during WW1 and WW2 to defend Chatham and London from the Germans. The tower is approximately 600m out into the River Medway. It is only accessible a couple of hours either side of low tide. There's a walkway leading out to it, It's broken up in places, and generally covered in a few inches of mud and seaweed!
