Bizarre, Abandoned Thames Sea Forts

Are they flying saucers on stilts or remnants of World War II? These odd structures look to be abodes on the sea, however designer Guy Maunsell had a different use in mind.

The Maunsell Sea Forts occupied positions in the Thames and the Mersey estuaries during World War Two. Seven steel platforms, interconnected, carried five guns in a semi-circle. At the middle of the diameter of this semi-circle there was the control tower. The seventh structure was for a searchlight.
