The Mysteries of the North Sea Platforms

In the second world war a series of army and navy forts were built offshore in the North Sea to protect us from enemy air force and naval incursions. These forts played a crucial role in early warning for air and sea raids. Abandoned after the war their history was then varied and at times unexpected. Some were occupied by Pirate Radio stations while others were used as film locations. One even became a micronation. In this course we will look at this unique history and the mixed cast of characters involved with these platforms. We will examine what is left of them and the unique legacy which they have left behind.

These courses are being run by WEA (Workers Education Association) with the Thames Sailing Barge Trust.

This is a non-accredited face to face course, but you will still need to access the WEA Canvas, their virtual learning environment.
