The Hauntings of the Old Garrison
In Campfield Road, Shoeburyness there’s a pub now called the Old Garrison.
In the 1990s the former manager of the pub was often puzzled because he could hear unknown children playing in the pub even outside opening hours…
He discovered that when he opened the door at the bottom of the pub’s stairs, the eerie sound of the phantom children playing always stopped!
One day a terrified maintenance man refused outright to work in the bar area after he saw apparitions of ghostly children in Victorian clothing playing in there.
Another apparition often seen behind the bar by both punters and members of staff alike is that of a man wearing an old fashioned white medical coat…
The pub was originally built in 1898 as a hospital for the soldiers and their family from the nearby garrison!
