Coal House Fort is a Victorian Coastal Defence Fort, which is next to the River Thames in East Tilsbury, Essex.
The Fort was built in 1874 to defend the approaches to London from the threat of invasion from France and other Foreign Countries.
This particular Fort is said to be one of the finest examples of an armored casemated Fort in the United Kingdom.
Since 1983 the Fort has been leased to the Coal House Fort Project, which is a voluntary organisation, who has worked hard to help the Fort keep much of its original Architectural form.
Coal House Fort has over 600 years of Military History so there is no surprise that this location has Paranormal Phenomena that is very, very active.
This Location has mile upon mile of Pitch Black Tunnels where no one can hear you scream when the lights go out!
Volunteers whilst at work on the Fort have witnessed Ghostly Apparitions and Strange mists before their very eyes.
Voices and the laughter of a child, along with heavy footsteps and the sound of something being dragged along the floor are just some of the strange phenomena experienced at this unique building.
The Most Haunted Programme visited here very recently and had a lot of activity throughout their stay overnight with extreme poltergeist activity.
We visited this location a few times in 2008 and have each time had very active nights with lots of stone throwing, fantastic Table Tipping responses such as the table jumping and moving around while we stood a foot away from it, also an apparition of a soldier dressed in full gas mask uniform was witnessed in the tunnels which as you can imagine scared the person who witnessed this incredible sight very much and they had to be taken out of the tunnels to get over the shock, all this along with sounds such as growling and moaning and feelings of being touched in the darkness you can see this place is really not for the faint hearted and you will need your senses about you!.
