The Hauntings of Harwich Redoubt Fort
One of the most common apparitions to be witnessed by visitors to Harwich Redoubt Fort is that of a headless soldier.
It’s said that a tragic accident happened when a cable attached to a heavy cannon snapped and decapitated a nearby soldier!
Since that shocking event, a gruesome vision of a headless soldier with his severed head tucked under his arm has been seen wandering around the grounds of the fort.
The headless soldier is not the only ghost to be seen at the Redoubt.
Visitors have seen an apparition of a shabby looking man and shadowy figures have been witnessed peering through the fort’s windows.
Another frequent paranormal event which tends to involve people visiting in the lower casements of the fort is the feeling of ghostly hands touching them.
A lot of audio paranormal activity also seems to occur at the Harwich Redoubt Fort.
Mysterious noises, unexplained footsteps, low mumblings, eerie whistling and distant voices have all been heard at the fort.
One common ghostly sound heard by the staff of the Redoubt is that of a women’s voice talking!
