This is Horse Sand Fort, in the solent. Just found this about what its going to be turned into ..... how much will they cost? Lets hope I win the loto.

Horse Sands Fort
Portsmouth City Council has granted provisional
planning permission for this fort during the
Planning and Development meeting held in April.
The owners ‘Optima Cambridge Ltd’ must now
come forward in the next 12 months with detailed
plans for the conversion into 14 apartments.
Optima are going to convert part of the basement
area into living accommodation for three live-in
staff.


And if you a fancy a job working on it try: http://www.jobbank.ro/jobseekers/job...hp?job_id=3660


These links have lots of good photos of Solent forts:

Keith, although my sea objects are not buoys they are all navigation aids ... and I have seen them all. Do they still count? I am hunting for a very special buoy photo I took in Orkney, you may know which one I mean..... RO. Will post it as soon as I find it in my photobox.
