Do Ghosts Exist at Redoubt Fort in Harwich? Well we went to find out.
The Redoubt was built between 1808 and 1810 to protect the port of Harwich against the threat of Napoleonic invasion, and is of circular shape, approximately 200ft in diameter, with a central parade ground of 85ft diameter. There is a free Kindle book available How The Redoubt Was Taken 1896.
Our first visit was a flying visit, as we didn’t want to intrude, as there was another paranormal group there setting up for their nights investigation. It was interesting though as when Suzie walked through the gates she was bombarded with so much energy. We would be back the following night for a full investigation.
The next night again as we walked through the fort gates the energy hit Suzie, in one area in particular she felt extremely unwell, in fact whenever she entered this particular spot during the night, she got the same feelings that it was not a nice area.
For those of you who are getting to know us, you will find that Suzie is a sensitive and I am the sceptic.
There was so many door ways to explore, and explore we did. Every room Suzie went into she was picking up feelings, some rooms were worse then others. In fact there wasn’t an area that she didn’t go in to that she didn’t pick something up.
We started off in one of the cells, it was decided that everyone would stand in a circle. One of the guests picked up on a feeling that we shouldn’t be in there, “why be in here when you could be out there” this guest kept picking up. One of the EastMPI team picked up on a feeling that made her feel that she should be in Suzie’s face, the way she explained it we got the impression it was quite aggressive.
We then moved onto the dormitory where the door kept rattling quite a few times when we were in this room, and it seemed to respond to our questions to. Do ghosts exist in the Dormitory? As the sceptic, I believe it may have been coincidental, we did have quite a bit of breeze that night which could have been effecting it.
The K2 meter was quite active in here, and responded to quite a few questions that were asked. From what we could gather we were interacting with a male, possibly an officer.
Finally we went back to the cells. Whilst in here I felt like my head was going to explode, for me to experience something like that is certainly not the norm, but was it something paranormal I would not like to say.
We still have the video and voice recorder to review and if anything appears or is heard then we will report back.
So Do Ghosts Exist at Redoubt Fort? Some strange happening but nothing concrete. However a great place full of history and we will certainly be returning for another visit.
