Southsea Beach Solent World War II Defences

Southsea Submarine Defences

Low tide at Southsea Beach

Low tide at Southsea Beach in Hampshire and the old sea defences that lead out into the sea are exposed. These huge blocks of concrete were dropped into the sea during World War II to deter German U-Boat attacks against ships at Portsmouth Harbour.

Have to say it was a pretty chilly day for standing around on the beach with a tripod!

This photo is also on 500px and Flickr. Thanks for your visit.

Here’s another view looking towards Horse Sand Fort:
