Description: The Phoenix breakwaters were a set of reinforced concrete caissons constructed by civil engineering contractors around the coast of Britain in World War II. They were collected and sunk at Dungeness, the Cant, and Pagham , and then towed across the English Channel to form the Mulberry harbour breakwaters together with the 'Gooseberry' block ships.

Several Phoenix breakwaters are still in use in Britain: two are part of the harbour off Castletown at Portland Harbour and two can be dived in less than 10 metres of water off Pagham. There is also a smaller Mulberry in Langstone Harbour.
