Photos TA3406 : Haile Sand Fort at low tide and TA3406 : Haile Sand Fort and Spurn Head, showing the fort at low tide are interesting, since until recently it was often possible to walk out to the fort at low tide. Don't try this now, there is a channel of deep water in the way!!
The fort was built, along with its companion Bull Sand Fort, in 1915-18 to guard the mouth of the Humber with submarine nets and two 6 inch guns.
More recent plans to turn it into a prison seem to have fallen through.
