Hi there,

The structures you see in the picture were built by England during World War II. It was designed by Guy Maunsell in 1942 to protect from a possible attack. The name of the structures also comes from the designer.

They are towers with 7 teams in total and they were built on the east side of the Thames and Mersey rivers.
