The Haunting of Wickham Market Workhouse
In Wickham Market there was once a former Victorian workhouse called the Plomesgate Union Workhouse.
Today, this old workhouse has now been converted into new apartments and is called Deben Court.
There’s a local ghostly tale which says that some of the poor workhouse children were buried alive in the walls of the building…
It’s said their sad spirits still haunt the building to this very day!
There have also been reports of a tall ghostly figure wondering around the old workhouse site in the middle of the night.
