and the Forts
Many books and numerous web sites provide
fascinating details of the Maunsell Forts of the Thames estuary.
Our aims are more limited and can be summarised as...
to provide a short overview of
the subject from a Whitstable perspective
to show local people a
selection of super photos kindly provided by Peter
Dalrymple and enable them take a close look at
structures that, hitherto, they may only have seen
from our beaches
to encourage people to take an
interest in the forts and their preservation.
Along the way, we hope that some of our readers will be
prompted to delve deeper into the history and technical apects
described on other web sites. With this in mind, we have
included links to the web sites of Bob Le-Roi and Project
