The Haunting of Rochford Maternity Hospital
Rochford once had a maternity hospital.
Unfortunately most of the old hospital has now been demolished with new housing being built on the site.
A small saving grace was that a new Rochford hospital was built in 2009 to treat patients with mental health issues in a small area of the old hospital’s grounds.
The old hospital was said to have a residential ghost.
Back in 1923 shocked nurses started to witness a ghostly apparition of a nurse in an old style uniform walking up and down the corridors of the old hospital late at night.
The ghost was nicknamed Matilda by the hospital’s nurses.
And on some occasion…
The patients even reported that they’ve spoken to her but had got no reply!
