Are you brave enough to join us on our first ever visit to the sinister Beacon Hill Fort in Harwich?

 

This location has had its fair share of terrible events occur within its walls and it comes as no surprise that paranormal activity is reported here on a regular basis. The place is haunting to say the very least even in the day time and you feel like you should not be there and you are being watched .

THIS LOCATION IS NOT FOR THE FAINT HEARTED 

History:

Originally built in the 19th century, it saw use in World War One, and was re-adapted in World War II, retaining the same basic plan.

A new emplacement was built to the south and fitted with twin 6 pounder (2.7 kg) guns, used for fast moving targets such as torpedo boats.

Search lights were added to the 1860 battery on the front, and a pill box built on the extreme south west corner of the fort on Dovercourt Bay.

The fort contains six main gun emplacements, battery observation post, two pill boxes, shelters, accommodation for officers, guard hut, store, workshops, fire engine shed, magazines, electricians store and shop, engine room and electric light platforms.

The works continue along the coast northwards, comprising a massive bank into which pill boxes and a two storey hexagonal radar tower have been constructed, all with commanding views of the Orwell estuary opposite Landguard fort.

Many of the 20th century buildings survive and retain important military information on the architecture of gun installations, ammunition storage, communications, observation and radar posts.

Over 18's only please.
