Those structures......hey guy's, attention, get a grip, focus.....that's better. Now as I was saying, those structures look like loading platforms. I would say mining once took place there. Or they were offshore loadign platforms for bulkcargo vessels that could not get in any closer due to no deep water port.

Solent "oddities"

We Brits have been building sea defences since Napoleonic times. Try these Solent hazards to navigation for size.
The Nab Light Tower is a forerunner to the Maunsell Sea Forts & marks the Deep Water entry into the Solent

The 4 degree list is not an illusion it's had it since sunk
For the Thames Estuary Sea Forts navigate from
Fort Fax & see Offshore
for publications videos & CD's on the Maunsell Sea Forts

The Napoleonic Forts here Horse Sand Fort in June 2003 on the mainland side of the Portsmouth approach

The view down into Horse Sand Fort taken in 1969
