Location History:

Harwich Redoubt Fort is a circular, moated fort that was built between 1808 and 1810 to defend against the threat of a Napoleonic invasion. French prisoners of war were said to be have been forced to help in the construction. The Fort is now surrounded by allotments and houses, but when it was built it stood alone on top of a hill, with views in all directions, protected from canon fire by the earthworks. The Fort was home to a regiment of soldiers with heavy artillery mounted on the upper level ready for use, along with enough supplies to withstand a lengthy siege. Thankfully, the invasion never came.
The need for the Fort gradually declined over the years and by the 1920’s it had become abandoned, until WW2 when it was brought back into military service for a brief period and used to hold British troops who were awaiting trial. The Redoubt Fort was eventually handed over to The Harwich Society, who are in the process of restoring the Fort and have opened it up to the public as a museum.

Reported Paranormal Activity:

One of the most famous apparitions to be witnessed by visitors, is that of the headless soldier.  It is reported that the soldier was decapitated by a cable which snapped after being attached to a canon. Visitors have reported seeing the soldier walking around the fort with his head under his arm. 
People visiting the lower casements are often touched by unseen hands which sees them flee in terror.
A lot of audio activity has also been captured at Harwich Redoubt Fort, including the sound of distant talking and whistling.
