Shoebury Boom 2
Shoebury Boom 2
Originally used as a submarine net in WW2, the Boom was reinforced with concrete during the Cold War. It runs a mile and three quarters out to sea. If you are a nutter like me you can walk out next to it at low tide for as far as you dare. Please see my other pictures of this structure on Geograph.
