Haunted: Colchester Military Hospital, Colchester, Essex

| On 21, Jun 2017

 

The Haunting of Colchester Military Hospital

Colchester Military Hospital was once in the grounds of Colchester Barracks.

A twenty hut hospital was first built on the site in 1856.

But it was then replaced by a splendid red brick hospital in 1896 which could treat up to 220 patients.

Unfortunately the Military Hospital was closed in 1977.

Sadly the building has now been totally demolished!

During the Second World War the hospital started to get a reputation for being haunted by a Victorian nurse.

Her ghostly apparition was often witnessed gliding down one of the hospital’s corridor only to vanish into thin air when she reached the end.

On one occasion, one of the wounded patients at the hospital swears that she actually helped to change his dirty bandages!
