3 Places in Essex Haunted by a Poltergeist

Chelmsford Railway Station, Chelmsford
In 1995 one of the hot water cylinders in a storeroom at Chelmsford Station was playing up and needed to be replaced.
A local plumber was asked to come into the station and install a new hot water cylinder.
When the plumber entered the storeroom he noticed it was totally empty all except a heavy old table with four chairs placed upside down upon it.
Whilst working on the new hot water cylinder the plumber got the fright of his life.
He heard an almighty crash behind him.
He quickly spun around to see what had caused all the commotion.
And he was shocked to find that the old table was now on its side with the chairs scattered all around the floor.
Also, there was no sign of anybody else having been in the room with him!
As you can imagine this really spooked him.
So much so, that he totally refused to work in the station storeroom alone.
You’ll be please to know that he managed to finish the job with the help of a fellow plumber.
And from then on, no further poltergeist activity ever took place!
The Beehive, Great Waltham
If you ever visit the Beehive pub in Great Waltham you may suddenly hear the sound of breaking glass.
You see, the pub is believed to have a poltergeist which just loves to break glasses and cause disruption with both the staff and punters alike.
The owners and staff at the pub have nicknamed their mischievous residential poltergeist… Old Ruffy!
Coalhouse Fort, East Tilbury
It’s said that the washrooms in Coalhouse Fort are haunted by an evil poltergeist nicknamed Harry.
Saying Harry doesn’t like people being in the washrooms… is an understatement!
Stones and light bulbs, and on some occasion’s even heavy chairs, have all been seen to be violently thrown across the room.
